Peru Org. Cajamarca El Cautivo

(2 customer reviews)

$3.99

A nice super fresh classic tasting Peru coffee! Great from a medium to dark roast. A bit more acidity being so fresh, light to medium roasts will have a bit of lemony floral tones upfront, mellows greatly as you get closer to 2nd crack. Very chocolaty cup, medium bodied with a sweeter edge to it. The lighter you roast, the more sweetness the cup gets but also the more lemony floral – it will be a little too front loaded at the light roasts, only a hint and a wonderful addition at the medium roasts, almost non existent at the darker roasts. Dark roasts are more of a smoky baker’s chocolate profile but equally as tasty as a nice medium roast.

Description

First new crop Peru offering!

Coming from family-owned farms located in the region of Cajamarca, Peru. The coffee is harvested by indigenous families on farms averaging 4 hectares in size. Farmers strive to protect the environment where they live through responsible water management practices, application of organic fertilizer, and shade grown farming.

Tasting Notes: A nice super fresh classic tasting Peru coffee! Great from a medium to dark roast. A bit more acidity being so fresh, light to medium roasts will have a bit of lemony floral tones upfront, mellows greatly as you get closer to 2nd crack. Very chocolaty cup, medium bodied with a sweeter edge to it. The lighter you roast, the more sweetness the cup gets but also the more lemony floral – it will be a little too front loaded at the light roasts, only a hint and a wonderful addition at the medium roasts, almost non existent at the darker roasts. Dark roasts are more of a smoky baker’s chocolate profile but equally as tasty as a nice medium roast.

Roasting Notes: Medium to low chaff, easy to roast. We would suggest erring a little darker than lighter but as long as you get some development past first crack, a tasty treat. For everyday drinking, get a little sheen on the surface but no wet oil; after a couple days’ setup it has smooth and rich chocolaty notes with hints of a nutty factor, real gentle acidity.

    Roasted this to first touch of 2nd crack. Absolutely great cup of coffee! Full, smooth, clean chocolatey flavor; great aroma. Definitely a keeper!

    I roasted it light (will try medium next) and it was FANTASTIC, we truly did not expect such a wonderful taste with milk chocolatey undertones! Too bad it is now sold out!
