The Peru Cajamarca APU is the next coffee available for our spring 2019 lineup. This coffee comes from the Cenfrocafe co-operative in the Cajamarca region of Peru. Each year the co-op selects its best coffee with a minimum of a score of 85 and names it APU. The name APU comes from the Quechua meaning for God of the mountains or supreme being.
The average farm size is between 4 and 10 hectares (10-25 acres) and follow methodical practices to ensure they do not overproduce and keep the quality high. Additionally, the farmers use an organic compost and bird guano from from an island of the coast of Peru. This adds micronutrients and promotes tree health.
This washed coffee has tastings notes of caramel, cocoa and honey with a smooth mouthfeel. We think this is a great session coffee that will keep you coming back for more all day.
