Peruvian Tres Cumbres
|Roaster Location:||Atlanta, Georgia|
|Coffee Origin:||Chanchamayo growing region, south-central Peru|
|Review Date:||May 2003|
Delicate and soft, with a tart sweetness suggesting Meyer lemon. Supple, smooth, elegant.
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
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.
