A country with a long history of coffee production but a short history of modern specialty exposure, Peru’s landscape caters well to the hundreds of small-holder farmers that produce organic, fair trade, specialty arabica coffee. Growing coffee in Peru has traditionally been about quantity, but with the help of some new infrastructure and organisations putting effort towards education and processing techniques, the producers have found value in switching from commercial to specialty grade harvests. Project Origin is beginning to explore the coffees of Peru and anticipate that the relationships we will discover across this country will prove special and flavourful.
🌤️ Rain patterns, as with much of Central and South America, have been seasonal but occasionally unpredictable, making it difficult to plan harvesting and drying on farms.
🌱 Lower altitudes harvested from April with higher areas only finishing harvest in October. Volume expectation is slightly higher than normal production, so harvest looks plentiful.
📦 We will be sourcing based on expressions of interest and keeping little, if any, Peru microlots in our inventory. We will not be buying black label or regional coffees from Peru this season.
