Roast: NA Review Date: August 2001
Origin: Northern Peru. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Either pleasantly subdued or disappointingly flat, depending on expectation. Roasty and mildly bittersweet, complicated by slight dry, brisk cocoa notes and perhaps some spice tones. The best of the four Perus submitted for this cupping.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of the dry and subtle. Perus are harvested in June through August, which means that all of the Perus in this cupping probably are nearly a year old and potentially faded in taste.
