In the Chontalí district of Peru, local coffee experts are sharing their knowledge and offering technical support to a new generation of farmers. Together they’re improving the quality of the beans and building a strong tradition of excellence in the cup. Cradled in the remote, steep-walled Chunchuca Valley in Peru’s Northern Highlands—where this coffee flourishes under ideal growing conditions—Chontalí’s rugged terrain and infrastructure can be a challenge to maneuver, often making it difficult to deliver coffee to processing mills. The collaboration and hard work of these dedicated farmers truly shine—every sip astounds with a distinct lemon-lime acidity. We’re proud to be offering this coffee for the third year in a row.

Varietal: CATURRA, BOURBON
