Our Peru Organic is spicy with a silky body and balanced acidity. It is bold in the front of the cup with heavy pepper and clove notes providing a sharpness on your tongue. The spiciness fades in the middle of the cup and it finishes with notes of vanilla sweetness and some hints of dark chocolate.
Roast Color: Dark
Cupping Notes: Vanilla, Clove, Black Pepper
Story: Cooperativa de Servicios Multiples Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP) is a small and focused cooperative in northern Peru that manages coffee from more than 300 farmer associates. The cooperative was formulated in 2003 with 35 local producers in the Lonya Grande district, part of the greater Amazonas department, and now the coop represents coffee growers across the highlands of Amazonas, as well as neighboring coffee powerhouse department, Cajamarca. During the years since its inception, JUMARP has made a name for the “El Palto” terroir, named after the highlands encircling Lonya Grande, and was also one of the first cooperatives to successfully process coffee beyond the traditional fully-washed standard—today they regularly offer natural and honey process lots, most often from single famers within the group. In Peru by far the bulk of coffee production comes from small farms owned and managed by people who have for many years followed organic farm management practice attuned to their cultural connection with the land. Producers, like Valentin and the rest of JUMARP’s associates, typically cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, fruits and vegetables. Small producers are often very careful about picking and sorting their cherry prior to depulping, fermenting, washing, and drying the coffee, all on personal equipment and on personal property. While producers design farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their varying needs, they also need a strong business alliance to bring their coffee to the international market and earn fair prices, regardless of whether the coffees are blended or sold independently.
This is an excellent bean if you like low acidity. The product description says "dry acidity" but I do not detect any acidity at all. It's a dark roast but not overdone.
Probably my single favorite McLaughlin bean/roast. Dark, usually oily, rich aroma, full bodied with no acidity that I can detect. My family's go-to brew.
No-nonsense coffee with a variety of solid tasting notes to make it the go-to blend when one needs to simply enjoy what coffee is all about.
Simply the Best coffee I’ve Ever tasted!
By far and away my very favorite coffee. I've been drinking McLaughlin since 1993 and somehow this coffee escaped me. I just discovered and now I can't get enough!
Very good! And she is from Peru!
This has be a staple in my house for a couple years now. While I get adventurous and explore other flavors, I always grab some bags of Peru.
Smooth but bold with a balanced acidity (no wincing here).
