As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class specialty coffee. Its high elevation, prominence of good varieties like Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra and a quality-focused movement among smallholder growers, is very encouraging for the future recognition these lots will deservedly receive.
When you taste it, seek for a softer profile like a marriage of cocoa, lemon, toffee and caramel, almond, and soft fruit like plum or sweet cherry.
Right now at Meron Roastery we are working our magic, roasting a 85 SCA Points single origin coffee from Peru. You can buy it coffee beans online from our shop (packages weighing 250 g or 1 kg) or taste it from our brew menu in every Meron coffee shop. Take a look at the coffee profile.
