We have sourced another Fair Trade Organic Peruvian coffee grown high in the Andean mountains of the state of Cajamarca. This cup is what we look for in a Peruvian coffee; a deep, rich finish full of cocoa flavors with just the right amount of brighter, round notes up front. Founded in 2008 the Sol y Café co-op united over 1,000 farmers with a goal to help the families develop and progress in their agrarian enterprises. Growers make agronomic and economic decisions for their product and seek opportunities to preserve the environment for continued quality yields. Rice and cacao is grown alongside the coffee, and each year the soil is augmented with organic material composted from the diverse crops. The coffee is picked, sorted, and washed by hand and then spread out to dry in the high altitude sun. We thought the coop name fitting for this cup; sun and coffee!
