5 lbs. Peru Approcassi Cajamarca Fair Trade Organic Shade Grown Fresh Green, Raw 100% Arabica Coffee Beans
A mellow, gentle coffee with a subtle nutty flavor and a pleasingly natural sweetness.
There are two things that contribute to the amazing and unparalleled taste of Peruvian coffee:

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.
