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

Blind Assessment: A sweet, fruity Peru that suffers from musty, mildewed tones. The mild musty influence turns the fruit and floral notes pungent, dry, and bittersweet. Pleasantly so, aside from the rather heavy finish.

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 sweetly floral version of the type that suffers from musty or mildewed tones acquired either drying or storage. Joe to Go claims to be "Hollywood's Favorite Coffee," offering coffee service to "100 of the biggest productions in the entertainment business" including The Tonight Show, Fox Sports, etc. Visit or call 888-288-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value coffees that, like traditional Sumatras, for example, embody an edgy, musty fruitiness.


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.
