It's been over a year since coffee from Peru has made its way onto our single origin menu, and we are proud to offer this stunning lot for a limited time. Fidel Chinchay and his farm El Shipal are members of the Santuario cooperative in the La Union community of central Peru. Working with a mission to help smallholder producers get the best possible prices for coffee through quality improvement, Santuario also offers technical field assistance, sending individuals with agricultural experience and training to offer advice on soil fertility, cultivation techniques, harvesting, and post-harvest practices in order to improve quality. With high elevations, excellent soil fertility and a favorable climate, this lot from Fidel Chinchay presents approachable fruity notes with a mouth filling honey-like sweetness that makes this coffee an easy drinker.
