As Peru is relatively new to the specialty coffee world, a few challenges directly related to this matter still exist. Peru’s coffee culture isn’t as strong as other major producing companies. Also, the distance between the farms and parchment delivery points in general is very significant and farmers opt to wait for a full load before driving their coffee to town. Most farmers dry their coffees on tarps laid out on the ground. As more incentive for the production of coffee with high cup scores are put in place, we hope to see these challenges quickly disappear as Peru moves into the specialty coffee world. Although these challenges call for very clear and direct solutions, this hasn’t stopped Peru from producing some very impressive coffee this year.
Producer lots are cupped and classified according to their quality. The 85+ coffees are placed into our Regional Select lots and the 87+ coffees are then further separated as Producer Microlots, highlighting Peru’s full potential.
