Story

In the coffee world, Peru is known for two things: a large crop of mildly flavored fair trade and organic certified coffees, and a harvest cycle that occurs opposite most coffee producing countries. Being in the Southern Hemisphere means that Peruvian coffees are fresh just as coffees from Central America are starting to show signs of age.

That only amplifies the appeal of a sweet, complex Peruvian coffee in the event that one can be located.

We have found several Peruvian coffees that hit these marks every year, and that we are proud to feature on our menu. We roast them to highlight their sweet, nutty, apple notes and then combine them in our all-Peruvian blend—Andino.
