What is Organic Peruvian Coffee?
Peruvian coffee is perhaps the best kept secret in the specialty coffee world. Because Brazil and Colombia are the world’s largest producers of Arabica coffee, Peruvian farms are often overlooked.
The truth is, Peru boasts the same exceptional environment, only without the major distribution channels. The less commercialized coffee industry is actually more conducive to achieving the exacting standards we feel must be met in an organic coffee. In Peru, things are done on a smaller scale. That means more care is put in to each and every harvest.
So don’t let its lesser known status as Arabica producer fool you—Peruvian coffee is uniquely bright and spirited, with a balanced acidity and exceptional flavor to rival its larger South American neighbors.
How is Organic Peruvian Coffee Grown?
Way up high in the Andes Mountains, the sunlight gently nourishes the land while the numerous shade trees prevent any threat of scorching. The climate is temperate and the rainfall ample, providing just the right conditions for exotic coffee plants to flourish.
Progressive Peruvian coffee farmers made a concerted effort to get their farms up to organic standards, and it benefits the taste of the coffee as much as it does Mother Nature. In its most natural state, the mildly acidic soil exudes a purity that deliciously informs the flavor of the beans it bears.
Free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and any other potentially harmful additives, Victor Allen’s organic Peruvian coffee is undomesticated—wildly natural with earthy undertones that run even deeper than the roots of the plants themselves.
