Our January coffee of the month is a washed Organic from the Cajamarca region in North Peru. It is a wild and complex coffee with a medium body and bold flavor profile. The cup starts out with notes of orange peel and the effervescent mouthfeel of a lemon-lime soda. That quickly fades into the mild spice notes of ground coriander melded with dark chocolate. At the end of the cup, the spice fades and you are left with a lingering dark chocolate sweetness in the aftertaste. 

Roast Color: Medium

Cupping Notes: Orange Peel, Dark Chocolate, Ground Coriander

About the coffee of the month: We feature a new coffee every month. This allows us to explore more of the world of coffee outside of our normal offerings. It is available this month only, while supplies last. 

Story: In Peru, the bulk of coffee production comes from 19 small farms owned and managed by people who follow organic farm management practice attuned to their cultural connection with the land. Producers typically cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas, corn, and beans. They carefully  harvest and sort cherries before depulping, fermenting, washing, and drying the coffee using their own micro-mills. While producers design farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their needs, they also need a strong alliance to bring their coffee to the international market and earn fair prices. Aroma del Valle, an organization established to assist small producers access the specialty coffee market carries out activities that often go unnoticed but are crucial for small producers. Investments for basic infrastructure needs, like road improvements, establishing local warehouses, and preparing coffee for export are all coordinated through Aroma del Valle, which ensures traceability and quality control throughout the post harvest process. Aroma del Valle also helps farmers navigate the organic certification process.
