3 lbs. Peru Approcassi Cajamarca Fair Trade Organic Shade Grown Fresh Unroasted 100% Arabica Coffee Beans
- There are two things that contribute to the amazing and unparalleled taste of Peruvian coffee:
- One, it is organically grown since 1700 AD and the technique that the farmers use has been handed over by word of mouth from generation to generation.
- And two, there is no interference yet from modern technology on any of the 110 thousand coffee farms in Peru.
- The combined effect of these two factors is that the organic Peruvian coffee has a remarkable taste the richness of which no one has yet been able to copy.
The town of Naranjas, located in Peru’s northern Andean region of Cajamarca, produces one of the best coffees in the world due to its aroma, flavor and quality, reported US satellite and cable television business news channel CNBC. Sunshine in your cup, grown by farmers of the APPROCASSI Fair Trade Group from Cajamarca province in Peru. Which means you’re not just getting an excellent coffee, you’re supporting sustainable farming, too. The coffee crop is cultivated in between trees so it is shielded completely from the sun. The Peruvian coffee is grown completely in shade. The beans are picked over a period of five months, i.e. May to September by hand. The next step, pulping, is also done by hand after which the beans are stored in huge fermentation tanks which helps in cleaning them. Lastly, the coffee beans are transported to the market where about 80 percent is exported. The farms where the coffee is grown are small, about 2-3 acres each where the farmers work hard to uphold the amazing quality of the crop using exclusively indigenous methods. Each farm is equipped with a micro-wet milling system which is yet another effort to keep Peru free form any type of chemical pollution. Full City Plus, a few snaps into 2nd crack, was nice, chocolaty, but more one-dimensional. The wet aroma has heather-like flowers. At that magical roast level, at City Plus, the cup has a fantastic milky chocolate, almonds, coconut. It's like a candy bar! There is a muted, clean fruit flavor; Bosc Pear, turning to milk chocolate in the finish, with bittering hints of almond skins. Roast Type: Light, City Plus to Medium Roast, Full City Plus

this is my very first green unroasted purchase from Rhoads Roast family of beans, as I've always bought there already roasted in house variety of beans, and have been super happy and totally satisfied with the high fresh quality always, as well as the awesome customer service with care and professional ideas and suggestions that come with the Rhoads Roast purchase! Diane and the RR staff simply want to ensure that you the customer gets the best quality beans as well as having the best price point combined with super fast s/h to go along with excellent quality beans themselves. I have roasted my Peru beans to the start of the 2nd crack process, and the result was totally killer, with a nutty and earthy flavor that tastes totally different as I use several types of processing and brewing the beans, from the stainless steel pour over cone, to my french press and finally to my Bunn coffee machine that is my long garden work day choice. I have a tough time when it comes to selecting the location and origin of my next green bean purchase, but the Peru is excellent, super balanced tasted and delicious flavor, I use a small dash of half n half, and find that I'm always having another cup in the middle of a hot summer day, which is something that I never did until my finding of Rhoads Roast coffee experts. try RR and you will find out just what premium coffee bean experience is all about. My only suggestion to RR would be to consider offering 1/2lb bean options so a person like myself, living alone on a tiny $$ monthly budget, would be able to order 2-3 lbs in 1/2lb increments to be allowed to have a chance to try more varieties of beans and not end up with a full lb of beans that truly aren't your favorite taste or flavor, had to suggest this only because I"m alone and a lb of whole beans is a lot and costs are important too me with such little source of income.
