Peru - La Palma 200g
Our second Peru in as many months - only in the last few years have we really been tasting great coffees from this region. And La Palma is no exception.
Jose Santos Campos is the owner of the two and a half hectare farm, La Quebrada in the La Palma community of Chirinos, which sits at 1700masl and is planted with pache, typica and bourbon.
The area of Chirinos is known for being one of the best quality coffee areas in all of Peru, due to it's varieties and high altitude. Jose has been trying to improve the quality of his coffee through better organic fertilisation and fermentation experiments.
Jose believes that specialty coffee production should be achieved with a respect for the environment and nature, which is why he has been replanting his farm and the surrounding area with native tree species, which provide a home for birds and animals, give shade and their foliage can be used for organic fertiliser.
In this coffee expect a juicy cup with blackcurrants and limes coming through strong.
We roast coffee every Tuesday, and then after our analysis and quality control we ship it out 1st Class Royal Mail on Wednesdays. Order this coffee by Mondays at 12 noon to guarantee delivery by the end of the week.
