This smooth, creamy medium roast Peru is like a freshly-baked molasses cookie: savory, spicy, and just a little smoky. Sourced through Caffe Vita’s direct trade relationships, Peru Rancho Sabancaya is a sustainable, certified-organic roast from Peru’s prime northern growing regions. You’ll love the caramel-smooth body, clean notes of molasses and brown sugar spice, and a hint of blackberry that rounds out a toasty finish.
Fine coffees from Peru share the beloved, South American flavor profile of mellow acidity, nutty undertones and a burnt-sugar, caramelized sweetness. Peru has been making a splash on the specialty scene within the past few years, producing some of the best, most affordable organic coffees on today’s market. When our coffee curator visited Peru with the Cup of Excellence last year, she was blown away by the culture: every small grower expressed an overwhelming pride in their work, a sense of contributing to something great. “The best coffee in the world is from Peru!” they’d exclaim. With a cup like this one, it’s clear that coffee from Peru is a real force to be reckoned with…
Peru Rancho Sabancaya is named for one of Peru’s active volcanoes of the Andes range. Sabancaya means “tongue of fire” in the native Quechua language— a language that many of Peru’s small farmers still speak! Luckily, this coffee transcends all language barriers. We love this organic cup for its smooth body, spiciness, molasses cookie flavor, and its versatile, low-acid profile. Reserve a bag of Caffe Vita’s Peru Rancho Sabancaya, and enjoy a sweet sip of Peruano pride and joy.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This medium roast was much more bold, like a dark roast, but with excellent flavors. Very earthy, dark molasses and a burnt brown sugar taste -- paired with creamer it really was quite delightful.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This really seemed like a dark roast to me in its flavor and appearance. Could really taste the tobacco notes and was bold and kind of flavorful. But I really had to add cream to enjoy it.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Great coffee that has a bold taste and is also bright and cheery--love buying coffee that supports a good cause, the dark chocolate notes mixed with tobacco make for a perfect gift for anyone that loves bold coffee|
