In Our Roastery
Peru is an origin that we always make space for on our menu whenever it's in season. We know this origin well and have many places we utilize it across our Toll Roasting and retail programs. It's an incredibly reliable coffee that can take the place of several other Latin American offerings when they run out, and we look forward to tasting fresh crop Perus as soon as they become available.
In Your Lineup
This coffee is fun to explore across each roast level. As a single-origin offering, we like it best as a medium roast, whether it's on the lighter or darker side of medium. That could be anywhere from 405°-415° on our larger production roasters. When we use this coffee in one of our blends, it provides great sweetness and a round, velvety body.

Cajamarca is a semi-dry, semi-cold, tropical highland of Peru with very fertile soil at high Andean mountain elevations. All of these factors contribute to the potential of specialty coffee production in the area, which is growing.
