Description

ABOUT THIS COFFEE
The chasquis were the messengers of the Inca empire — the fittest and most highly trained individuals; the best of the best. They would not only run messages across great distances and topographies but could read and translate and helped to keep order.

This coffee is a collection of lots from around Peru that, like its namesake, are the best of the best. Coffee cherries were machine cleaned and processed, and after the coffee was dried it was sorted by color and density to ensure that only the best beans remained.

GEOGRAPHY
Junín is in the center of the country, Cajamarca is in the north and San Martin is in the northeast.

The Center Regions used to be the largest, in terms of coffee volume, but that dropped dramatically after the leaf rust crisis in 2013. Since the crisis, San Martín and Cajamarca have been expanding again, in both productivity and new planted areas.

ABOUT PERU
Known as the land of the Incas, Peru boasts a rich coffee-growing culture that dates to the 1700s. WiTh the spine of the Andes running through the western half of the country, Peru is an ideal place for growing high-quality Arabica. Coffee here is traditionally shade grown and processed in artisanal wet mill operations.

    This is a can’t miss, get it while you can!
    While I have never had a coffee I didn’t love from Modest; Peru – Cafe Capili is my new fav! The aroma just opening the bag was enough to win me over but the brew ( pour over) was the clincher. Thank you for your superb roasts!
