ORIGIN: Peru

In 1895, it was recorded that although Peru was known for coffee production, it was mostly for domestic use. In the years since, production has moved from mostly wealthy European farms, to smaller independent producers. In order to overcome the challenges that face small lot producers, many have formed cooperatives to mitigate these hurdles. Today, Peru is noted as a major producer of organic and fair-trade coffee beans, and coffee is one of the country’s most important agricultural sectors.

REGION: San Jose de Lourdes, San Ignacio 

Located in the Cajamarca region of Northern Peru. This region extends north to the Ecuadorian border. Described as a privileged climate, the area boasts a wooded mountainous landscape, with many natural resources. The town of San Jose de Lourdes is accessible only by cable car or raft, which makes it logistically difficult.

PRODUCER: Coop Agraria de Servicios Multiples El Milagro

This small but growing cooperative is mostly made up of farms that are only 3 hectares in size. Despite the difficult location, they have an office and cupping lab, and have recently invested in enclosed drying structures. This has allowed members to improve their drying techniques, and subsequently increase cup quality as well. Since 2015, the cooperative has also begun a microlot program. This provides the producer cupping feedback, a desire to improve quality, and general encouragement.

Great taste

These green beans roast to a rich flavour.

Great coffee, without the caffeine

An absolutely great coffee. Roasted carefully, you can not distinguish this decaf from a regular coffee. I regularly drink this coffee any time of day. Try a blind taste test with your friends.

Peru FTO Decaf

This is the nicest decaf we have tried so far. We like it fairly dark. Very rich and smooth.

Good consistent quality

It is difficult for me to write a proper review because I am new to roasting. However, the quality of my coffee is at least as good as a typical high-quality roaster.

What I can say with confidence is that the quality is consistent from bean to bean and bag to bag. That is really important for a novice roaster.

I will continue to buy this product.
