Clean and full, candied malt and hints of dates

Roasters' Notes:

Whether you're a coffee connoisseur or an adventurous newcomer, this Peruvian washed community lot is a unique and delectable choice.

It's especially significant to take bean density and size into account when roasting mixed variety lots to ensure that each bean is roasted evenly, coaxing out their full range of flavours. Being one of our more 'classic' roast profiles, we carefully extend the development of this coffee. The result? Notes of chocolate and candied malt are complemented by prominent pear and date sweetness.

It's certainly worth highlighting the impeccable cleanliness of this lot, surpassing our expectations for an exceptional cup of Peruvian coffee.

Roast style: Classic 

Coffee Origin Information:

Estela de Chontali is a community coffee lot produced by a small group of farmers in the Chunchuco Valley of Peru. The town’s name takes its inspiration from a mysterious 1.8m tall calcareous stone that was found on Mount Corcovado in 1984. The stone has inscriptions from the ancient Chavin people, one of the oldest civilizations of the continent. Due to erosion, the complete meaning of the scene depicted regrettably cannot be deciphered. With recognisable snake and feline forms, many like to think that the scene is a foretelling of the ancient people's appreciation for the potential of the land for coffee cultivation.

The community of Chunchuco has a strong culture of cooperation and sharing of resources. This close-knit community of small-scale farmers is an integral part of the unique character of the coffee coming out of the region.
