Organic Peruvian Light Roast Coffee 1/2 LB
Peruvian coffee is grown in the Andes Mountains. This equates to very high altitude which further equates to higher quality coffee. In order to deal with the harsh climate that comes with the higher altitude, Peruvian coffee plants must grow hardier and more robust. Coffee that is grown in higher altitudes such as the Andes has often been thought to have a naturally sweeter, more complex flavor than other coffees. At lower temperatures, coffee trees grow more slowly. The slow-growth of the tree means that the coffee cherries ripen more gradually, which gives them more time to develop the complex flavors we look for in a cup of specialty coffee. Shade-grown coffee works on the same principle.

Peruvian coffees are grown very high in the Andes Mountains. This exceptional altitude creates a coffee with bright effervescent snap, gentle sweetness, and nice medium body.
