Peru, Washed. Monteverde Amazonas
It has a sugary, fruit-forward profile which reminds us of a berry syrup.
Café Monteverde is a producer group that brings together 250 farmers from the area around Rodriguez de Mendoza, Amazonas, Peru.
Cafe Monteverde was started by husband-wife duo, Alfonso Tejada and Karen Araoz. They previously owned a travel agency together in Lima.
They saw their coffee business as a mean of helping small producers in the region to market their coffee in better conditions for the people and the environment.
The coffee cherries are selectively handpicked. Only ripe coffee cherries are picked.
