    Roaster’s Notes
    If you'd told us even two years ago that Peruvian coffees would oft be on our roster, we'd have scoffed. These days, we're singing a different tune, one with the most delicious of hooks! This bad boy comes from the small town of La Union de Chirinos, widely renowned for specialty coffee because of its ideal climatic conditions and high altitude. Although called the singular "Finca", 10 small farms are working together with a hive mind to improve methods at every stage of the process and dramatically improve cup quality. They've been installing large solar tents (carpa solares) that house raised drying beds to combat unpredictable weather and closely monitor for ideal moisture content in the beans. Anyhoo, if you're a fan of coffee that's clean and even keeled, boasting ripe stone fruit, hard candy and brown sugar sweetness then... Go Clickity, we got ta bag it up!
