A very nice arrival to kick off the new Peru season. The Norte Peru has been a real big hit the last couple of years and this cup is just as tasty as it has been in the past.
Coming from family owned farms organized around the CENFROCAFE co-op, which is an umbrella cooperative established in 1999 that supports 80 organizations and 2,000 coffee producers in the region of Majorca, Peru. CENFROCAFE provides training and financing aimed at improving coffee quality and yields to increase farmer earnings.
A great gentle and smooth cup of coffee. Low acidity cup, one can see a little floral at the lighter roast points but in general it will be smooth, medium bodied, chocolaty with low acidity and a bit sweeter edge. Most will like these beans from a nice medium roast to a little bit on the darker side. A cup almost everyone will like and a good everyday drinker.
Easy to roast, avoid super light roasts or you will get front-loaded floral/grassy tones that taste a bit unbalanced. City + to Full City roasts are great and will maximize the sweet and smooth tones. Darker and it turns more semi-sweet chocolate based with very minimal acidity, a little more body and adds a hint of smoke.
