It seems fitting as we enter the coldest days of winter, that our lineup of coffees become weighted towards the more chocolatey, full bodied comfort coffees from South America. Our first offering of 2022 is a delicious representative from Efrain Carhallocollo, who grows his coffee high (nose-bleed high) in the mountains of the Cajamarca region - northern Peru.
Efrain has been working in coffee for over 30 years now and he ensures that all the workers on his small 3 acre farm love coffee like he does. Clearly his passion for great coffee translates into the cup. Right off the grind you'll be greeted with a chocolate and cola sweetness in the aromatics. The caramel and chocolate can be found in the flavors as well and are joined by fruit notes like pear and plum. It seems maybe we all could use a cup of smooth, full bodied, sweet goodness to snuggle up to right now. Thanks to the hard and dedicated work of Efrain, you needn't look further.
