Peru La Coipa (Jul-Aug 2022)Regular price $20.00
Coffee was first brought into Peru in the middle of the 18th century, and all the coffee grown were consumed locally initially. Even though Peruvian coffee was only first exported towards the end of the 19th century, its climate is very suitable for large-scale coffee production and is now one of the largest coffee producers of the world.
In Peru, there is a strong culture of organic production among farmers as they have limited/no access to chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and they hand pick and process each coffee bean.
Some of the coffee growing regions in Peru includes Cajamarca, Junin, Cusco, and San Martin. Our #dYScover collection this month features coffee from the Cajamarca region, located in the northern end of the country. This region has an equatorial climate and rich soils suitable for coffee production, and most producers here are smallholders. They benefit from producer's organizations such as CENFROCAFE, which provides technical help, training, loans, and other forms of support to the farmers.
We taste notes of nutmeg, juicy redcurrants, and a slight grapefruit-like bitterness, in a smooth medium body with a pleasant acidity to finish.
As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Peru, do make sure you give this a try soon!
There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another.
#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!
