Rayos del Sol: A single farm Peruvian coffee
Coffee production at Finca Rayos del Sol consists of 40% Red Caturra, 35% Yellow Caturra, and 25% Bourbon. Surrounding fruit trees provide shade coverage and only organic fertilizers are used. Tropical fruit trees are inter-cropped with the coffee to support biodiversity and provide shade coverage for the coffee trees.
This coffee is processed similarly to our other Peruvian direct trade coffees in which fully ripened cherries are hand-picked, wet-processed and allowed to gradually sun-dry on concrete patios for 7-12 days. The resulting parchment is then driven to a dry-mill in Puira Peru, where it is hulled and the green beans undergo a meticulous sorting procedure. Once ready for export, the green coffee is packaged in Grain-Pro lined jute bags for shipment from the port of Paita. Our team travels with the coffee, monitoring its movement at each stage of the process in order to ensure its successful passage from the farm to our facility.
Cupping Notes: Plum, Passion Fruit, Black Currant, Tangerine; Juicy, and jam like with a dense sweet body
