Peru Cajamarca Hacienda LA ENCANTADA

  • Winey cup (meaning: plump, round, ripe fruit)
  • Notes of Fig and Prune
  • Hints of Chocolate and Lemon

Region: Cajamarca

Variety: Costa Rica, Bourbon, Pache, Caturra

Farm: La Encantada

Producer: Nehemias Flores

Imported by: Cafe Imports

Rob Says: Best Peruvian coffee i ever tasted. For years we have been cupping disappointing stuff from this country, but with all the hard work done by Cafe Imports at origin this is changing. After investments in infrastructure, transportation and lot separation, comparable to practices done in other well known coffee origins like Colombia, we are happy to see and taste the difference in the cup.

 

 

This lot comes to us from producer Nehemias Flores of Nuevo Trujillo, Peru. His farm, Finca La Encantada is a 2 hectare parcel of which 90% is planted with Costa Rica, Bourbon, Pache, Caturra, along with vegetables, wheat, and fruit trees. Nehemias first acquired this farm in 2011. This specific lot was harvested at peak ripeness, depulped, fermented on average for 14-20 hours, then moved to the parabolic dryer for an average period of 5-9 days.

THIS COFFEE WILL BE AVAILABLE BY THE END OF FEBRUARY.

Peru Cajamarca CHIRINOS

  • Sweet and fat
  • Relatively low acidity
  • Floral and a touch of berries

Rob Says: Happy we can offer a couple of Peruvian coffees for the first time ever. This bean is a real espresso bean, due to its low acidity combined with this sweet and round body. When pulling espresso shots the acidic and bitter nuances tend to come forward, so we need to be very careful with our selection and roasting protocols.
