APPLE COMPOTE, SWEET SULTANAS + BUTTERY PASTRY NOTES
Near the small town of Bomboca, northern Peru, lives Duber Vasquez, a first-generation coffee farmer, with his wife and three children. Their farm, Vista Alegre, is planted out with predominantly Bourbon & Catuaí trees, as well as some Catimor varieties, which are kept separate during harvesting and processing.
Situated at 1,900 metres the climate is really great for growing high quality coffee, and the family are also producing guava, plantain and other food crops.
Origin Coffee Lab are the exporter responsible for the sourcing project in Colosay. They will earmark and select particularly characteristic and higher scoring lots to keep separate with full traceability as well as creating solid lots for roasters who like to buy blending components that are a little more simplistic. They are focussed on securing a living wage for their producers, and last year they paid out over $500,000 in premiums, meaning the price paid for the coffees was well in excess on not just the global C market price, but also well above the market rate for washed, organic Peruvian lots.
This coffee is roasted for filter.
If you require the beans to be ground then please leave us a note at the checkout (and tell us what you brew on).
