  • Peruvian Tres Cumbres

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2003
Origin: Chanchamayo growing region, south-central Peru Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicate and soft, with a tart sweetness suggesting Meyer lemon. Supple, smooth, elegant.

Notes: Peru coffees, surprisingly given their high growing altitudes, tend to be gentle, sweet, and delicate in acidity. This example from the Chanchamayo region near Machu Picchu is a fine representative of this underappreciated type. FreshCoffeeNow claims to roast and ship coffee the same day it is ordered. Visit or call 866-394-7852 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Expresses about 80% of the sweet, round genius of Peru coffees, which is considerably better than the many half-hearted 50% versions one encounters. Try it if you are curious about the flavor potential of this resonantly gentle, underappreciated origin.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
