From Clifton Coffee:
Flavour Notes: A harmonious balance presents itself from a creamy body, floral aromatics bolstered by sweet caramel, cola and cherry. Roasted specifically for filter brew methods.
v.2 of our House Filter Project has been sourced from Cafe Imports Regional Select Programme consisting of a number of smaller lots from the Cajamarca
We are looking forward to seeing Peru become a power-house in coffee in the following years.
As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: concentrated volumes of coffee growing at and above 1700 metres above sea level, a prominence of Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra, and a movement among the producing population, away from subsidence-farming, and into seeing quality coffee production as a viable business.
As Peru is relatively new to the specialty coffee world, a few challenges directly related to this matter still exist. As more incentive for the production of coffee with high cup scores are put in place, we hope to see these challenges quickly disappear as Peru moves full-stride into the specialty coffee world.
Although these challenges call for very clear and direct solutions, this hasn’t stopped Peru from producing some very impressive coffee this year. So exciting, in fact, that we have decided to expand our Regional Select program from Colombia and apply it in Peru. Producer lots are cupped and classified according to their quality. The 85+ coffees are placed into our Regional Select lots and the 87+ coffees are then further separated as Producer Microlots, highlighting Peru’s full potential.
