This is our first organic coffee from Peru and it surely does not disapoint!
It has a stunning mouthfeel, great balance and very nice potential for espresso as well as for filter brews.
Las Quebradas is the name of one of value added communal producer blend concepts. It’s from a group called El Diamante. They are smallholders with 2-5 hectares each, and are located in high altitudes close to the village Vista Alegre in Jaen, one of the main growing regions in the north of Peru. The producers are part of a coffee quality program and are all organic certified. The producer premiums are high and fair compared to many other places, but the expectations of quality is also different and higher. The altitudes ranges from 1700 - 1900 masl. They mainly grow Caturra, Pache and Bourbon. The farmers have their small individual beneficios where they depulp, ferment, wash and dry the coffee themselves. The lots are evaluated separately before they are approved as part of a high quality communal producer blend. The farmers help each other in the harvesting season. A typical farmer within this programs will have 2 hectares, planted with coffee. They are mainly organic, and many are certified.
