Peru has been an intriguing origin that’s been recently known to produce excellent high quality coffee. A lot of work has been done in the last 5 years to provide more transparency to the market as well as traceability to the producers. 

Sergio Chinguel Alberca belongs to the Cedros Co-operative in Cajamarca & he grows mostly Bourbons as well as Caturra at his farm La Granadilla. The co-operative is part of a reforestation program to combat the complex sustainability challenges they face. 

Sergio & his brothers were inspired by their mother, Maria Esmida Espinoza who has consistently delivered high quality coffees year after year. This year we’re excited to share 2 coffees from 2 different brothers, starting with Sergio. 

This coffee was pulped & wet fermented for 22 hours before being dried in parabolic driers. This is a crucial step to that bright, juicy & expressive coffees that Peru is known for! Our roasting philosophy brings about a crisp acidity, reminding us of naval oranges. The coffee is incredibly clean & sweet, with notes of candy, plums & grapes. Truly delicious!
