The standout feature of our Fair Trade Organic Peru coffee is the unique depth of flavor. You can truly distinguish the spiced cinnamon flavor at the first sip, to a caramelized sweetness in the body and a lingering citrus finish. With medium acidity and a bright and complex flavor profile, this organic Peruvian coffee is an excellent example of the pure greatness of South American coffee.
This Peruvian coffee comes from a group known as Aprysa located in the municipality of Rodríguez de Mendoza in the Amazon. We are extremely excited to be working with them because of their determination, commitment to quality, environmental stewardship, and community care.
Aprysa is certified fair trade and organic and almost half of their producers are women. When it comes to producing coffee, they place an importance on benefiting the community, education, and the environment.
Through quality initiatives like improved processing and the construction of solar dryers, Aprysa has achieved high quality standards which have stabilized the group's supply chains. Within their community, and beyond, Aprysa focuses on securing a bright future for the youth. This is exhibited by the 100% school attendance rate among the children of the Aprysa coffee producers. Regarding their environmental stewardship, the farmers at Aprysa maintain bio diverse farms with 46% of land in coffee production, 21% in forest conservation, and 28% as grass and fields.
