Here at the Moustache Coffee Club, we go through a lot of specialty coffee. We see our fair share of Colombian and Kenyan coffees, (and for good reason), but it's always a treat when something a little different comes along. Enter Vilcaniza. Grown by the Coopbam cooperative, Vilcaniza is a washed coffee from Peru that's bursting with flavor. The specialty coffee scene is taking off in Peru, and we're beyond excited to bring you the best Peruvian coffees we can get our hands on.
Vilcaniza has a pretty unique taste, bringing some new flavors into the specialty coffee realm. A sticky-sweet fig note provides some sweetness, while a toasted almond note adds a dash of savory, nutty flavor. The cup also contains a smooth, fresh taste something akin to persimmon, which we've been transfixed by since we brewed our first cup. Enjoy!
