Coffee farmers in Peru produce some incredible and very diverse coffees using a wide variety of processing methods. The production of high scoring speciality coffee is something that has only started to happen in the last few years and we are very pleased to be a part of the growth. You can read more about the history of coffee from Peru on our page titled Peruvian Coffee.

Producer Overview:

Victor Garcia Gavidia owns 3 hectares of land in Alto Pirias, Chirinos. Victor grows mostly Castillo variety, but still has some areas of the farm planted with Caturra, which he keeps separate during the harvest. This allows him to produce single varietal micro-lots.

In previous years Victor had been producing washed coffees and was finding it challenging to produce coffees scoring above 84 points. He decided to start experimenting with natural processing and the first few tests were very successful with scores of 86-88 points! 

His farm is located next to Eli Espinoza Soberón who won 8th place at the most recent Peru cup of excellence competition with a natural processed micro-lot. We were fortunate to have had a limited amount of the cup of excellence coffee from Eli and we are very pleased to be able to say that this natural processed lot from Victor Garcia isn't far behind in terms of cup score!

Producing higher scoring natural microlots has meant that Victor can sell his coffee at higher prices generating better income for him and his family. 

Harvesting and Processing:

Coffee is hand-harvested focusing on the selection of only ripe cherry from the yellow caturra trees. After harvesting the coffee are washed twice to remove any contaminates. Careful washing can help to reduce microbial load which slows down the fermentation process resulting in clean, balance flavours that aren't over fermented. The coffee was dried for about 30 days on raised tables.

Tasting Notes: 

We love natural processed coffees especially when they showcase wonderful fruit flavours but aren't over fermented! This is a fantastic natural processed coffee with tasting notes that include black cherry, tropical fruits and a rich dark chocolate like body. 


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 wholebean 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.

Smells and Tastes Incredible!

I’ve recently purchased a coffee machine and the advice was to get local coffee — it is usually the freshest. I decided to order the organic blend, and just the bouquet of the beans was enough to wake you up. It smelt incredible; the taste and the freshness exceeded my expectations — and my coffee machine loves them. I make a perfect espresso each morning. I will definitely be purchasing them again as and when needed.

Super fluffy

Fantastic quality grinder, built like a tank, super fluffy output, no static issues.

only flaw re usability is no auto off and touch buttons are not the most responsive so manual grinding is not most accurate
