Peru contains many sub-regions famous for producing coffees of excellent quality, however, the districts southwest of Jaén are not typically thought of in that same vein. Largely overlooked by specialty traders, most of the coffees from this area have historically been bulked into large commodity blends. Working closely with our exporting partner, we have started to dig deeper and explore the quality potential of the many small coffee-producing communities in the area. This year’s selections have excited us with flavors of black cherry, stone fruit, and milk chocolate.
The Nariño region is known for producing some of Colombia's finest and highest-altitude coffees. The region has also experienced ongoing challenges with conflict that has made trade more difficult and discouraged farmer aggregation.

This year’s selection of K’uychi pleases with notes of green grape, clementine, and milk chocolate.
