Beans from Peru have a very smooth, soft aroma. There is a delicate fragrance of cherry from the coffee fruit. Next is a whiff of chocolate caramel candy, and a hint of spice and roasted sugar. It's smooth and creamy. Did we mention that it's certified organic?
It's creamy and hits the mouth with an exciting brightness. There is just a touch of tannins in the finish.

Peru Norte SHB EP coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE), which is an umbrella cooperative established in 1999 that supports 80 organizations and 2,000 coffee producers in the region of Cajamarca, Peru. CENFROCAFE provides training and financing aimed at improving coffee quality and yields to increase farmer earnings.
CENFROCAFE is one of the leaders in creating a cooperative alliance with like-minded associations in the greater Cajamarca region to provide important technical and marketing services to thousands of small-scale farmers in Northern Peru. Without this kind of strong organization, local farmers would have otherwise been left each to his or her own devices to develop best practices for healthy fields and increased production yields, or for the marketing and sales of their coffee.
