Sandia de Puno
Bordering Bolivia and far from any bustling city centers, Sandia de Puno in the Peruvian Andes is home to the Cecovasa Cooperative, the source of this delicious offering. Excellent shading, extreme elevations, and mostly heirloom Typica variety trees make for some great coffee. Like many producers in South America, these growers have modest 1-2 hectare farms with simple homestead milling - handcrank pulpers, small tanks for fermentation and communal patios for drying. A very balanced and buttery coffee, this Sandia de Puno selection offers flavors of chocolate cake, mixed berries and plum.
