Producer Overview:

San Jose del Alto is an area 4 hour's drive from Jaen with massive potential for quality coffee. Some of the coffees from this area have a very distinct cup profile, full of complexity and bursting with floral notes. Since the area is slightly isolated, with relatively poor roads and being far from the city of Jaen, it has received very little investment both in general and in terms of coffee production. As a result of the lack of investment, many farmers remain un-associated and there isn’t much of a presence from coops or associations,

Pedro Garcia Diaz owns 2 hectares of land in the San Francisco village in the district of San Jose del Alto. Pedro grows bourbon, tabi and pache varieties and produces 60 exportable bags of coffee per year. Since Pedro lives in the city, his family manage his farm, but he spends time there during the harvest season and when they prune and apply fertiliser. 

Harvesting and Processing:

Coffee is picked selectively to ensure that only ripe cherry is selected for processing. After harvest, the coffee is rested and pulped before being fermented for around 36 hours. This fermentation process helps to create interesting flavours in washed coffees. After fermentation, the coffee is washed to remove any remaining mucilage and then placed to dry on tarpaulin mats on the ground, where it dries for two weeks.

Tasting Notes: 

This is a great example of the best-washed coffee Peru has to offer. The combination of varietal, climate, tree care, selective harvesting and excellent processing has resulted in a fantastic coffee.! We love the clean, well-balanced and juicy fruit notes. These include crisp red apple, mandarin and toffee.

Brewing:

This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 17 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 

This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground, but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.
