    No fireworks but so smooth and easy to drink with a nice acidity. Definitely get a raisin/grape and orange. Somewhere between caramel and a black tea platform. Like it a lot.

    Cupping Method:Pourover at Intelligentsia Watertown

More Details

Bean Source Country: Peru
Peruvian specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse microclimates and high elevations in the Andean mountains. These factors contribute to the beans' unique flavor profile, typically featuring bright acidity, medium body, and subtle notes of fruit, chocolate, and floral undertones.
Bean Source Region: Cajamarca
Cajamarca, a region in northern Peru, is renowned for producing high-quality coffee due to the region's high elevation, fertile soil, and favorable climate. Cajamarca's coffee-growing areas are located in the Andes Mountains, where the elevation ranges from 900 to 2,300 meters above sea level. This high altitude slows the ripening process of coffee cherries, allowing them to develop more complex flavors. The soil in Cajamarca is rich in organic matter and minerals, providing essential nutrients for coffee plants. Additionally, the region's climate—characterized by distinct wet and dry seasons, along with moderate temperatures—promotes healthy growth and reduces the risk of diseases and pests. Coffee from Cajamarca often has bright acidity, vibrant floral aromas, and rich sweetness, making it a sought-after specialty-grade coffee.
