Peru has always possessed amazing potential to produce great quality coffee, yet excellent Peruvian coffees are rare. To some degree, the success of Peru coffee has been it's downfall. Organic certified Peru coffees are ubiquitous, always as close as your local Trader Joe's, but the coffee is often poorly picked, processed and roasted, if it is even freshly roasted at all.
A great daily drinking coffee from Argion Villanueva, toasting sugar bittersweetness dominates the cup, with faint dried apple and almond notes, and a well-integrated acidity. City roast is a shade too light and tends to be a tad grassy. City+ to Full City+.
Versatile in the roaster, this Typica bean coffee has heavy elements of raw sugar and cinnamon, along with high % cacao notes. Body is emphasized in City+ and beyond roast levels. City to Full City+. Good for espresso.
