Our Origin Select coffee this month comes from the Jaén province of Cajamarca, Peru. This sweet, smooth, and tart coffee features coffee cherry, toffee and praline flavors. Our roasters chose a medium-light roast to bring out the best in this Fair Trade certified bean.
This coffee is part of a collective of 400 smallholder farmer members of the Lima Coffees exporting organization. As president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony Lavan is an ambitious and quality-driven cupper who has spent his career trying to carve out better and bolder coffees from small producers in Peru. Rony has already established himself as standing at the forefront of microlot-quality coffees in Cajamarca. During his first year with Lima Coffees, he entered the national competition and won; with the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings. Rony and his coffees will be the ones to watch!
