La Flor del Zapote: A single farm Peruvian coffee
Northern Peru is legendary for producing coffee with bright, rich flavors. At some of the highest global growing elevations, the “Amazon Andes” yield some of the best developed flavor profiles in the world. We now introduce a coffee that not only hails from this famous region, but that also comes from a single farm.
The farm, La Flor del Zapote, sits at an elevation of over 5,500 feet and is cultivated by a single family with whom we have a direct relationship. This rare, single farm sourcing produces coffee of unrivaled consistency and a complex taste with a full body. No other coffee origin can match the quality and traceability of single farm produced coffee.
These beans are certified by Coffee for Education, a benefit corporation that supports education in coffee growing regions in the developing world. A portion from each sale will support education in a small coffee village, giving children from the village their only local opportunity for secondary education.

The new coffee you are offering from Peru is excellent. I found it to be very smooth, mellow...not really fruity which is what I really prefer in a coffee. The beans were a little bit larger than some of the other beans I have tried in the past. Altogether a great coffee. I will definitely enjoy every single cup
