Process method: washed Origin: Peru Region: Cajamarca Farm/Producer: various smallholder farmers Elevation: 1800-1900 masl Variety: Bourbon, Catimor, Caturra, Costa Rica, Typica Retail Price: $15/12oz. box
As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: Its high elevation; prominence of good varieties like Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra; and a quality-focused movement among smallholder growers, especially in cooperatives utilizing organic husbandry, is very encouraging for the future recognition these lots will deservedly receive. We seek a softer profile in our Regional Select coffees from Peru, with a marriage of cocoa, lemon, toffee and caramel, almond, and soft fruit like plum or sweet cherry.
Along with our new packaging launch, we have chosen to raise the prices of our blue and red tier whole bean coffee. Due to the challenges facing the industry at the global level, coffee is becoming more expensive to produce and we must adjust in order to remain sustainable.
Feel free to email contact@velocoffee with any questions regarding this decision. We would be happy to share more about this with you!
