This season, the stars are brightly shining— and brewing! These beans come from Cajamarca, Peru’s top growing region, for a candy-sweet profile of caramelized peaches, honey roasted almonds, and a lovely, cinnamon stick finish.
This is an SHB, grade 1 organic lot from Estrella Divina, a small town in La Cooipa located in one of the highest areas of La Coipa called Rumpite. La Coipa is one the highest coffee growing region of Cajamarca, Peru, with elevations ranging between 1,600 MASL to 2,100 MASL. It is also well known for the Tabaconas - Namballe Sanctuary. Its clay soils and constant rains make this region a paradise for coffee. In other regions of Cajamarca it is customary for farmers to sell coffee in the street market, however in La Coipa this does not happen often. In La Coipa even the very smallest producers process their own coffee; to their own standards and criteria. Because of this, La Coipa contains diversity in flavor profiles unseen in other areas of Cajamarca.
Estrella Divina has the perfect elevation, climate and generally good farm management practices, making the region’s future potential for specialty coffees high. A unique microclimate is created in Estrella Divina when warm air currents from the plains of Rumipite come up the mountainside and mix with cool, fresh air descending from the La Coipa mountains. This mixture of airflows provides a climate that allows coffee production in this region up to 2,000 meters above sea level.

||★★★★★||★★★★★ Would have liked to try it--but it didn't come in my package even though my account shows I should have received it. Instead I got another coffee, guess I'll try to review that one.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was one of the two samples I received and I loved it. I hope it comes back in stock.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Velton is my favorite roaster so I was surprised I didn't like this more. Maybe fighting off colds dulled my tastebuds a bit, so I would definitely try again because the description is amazing.|
