A note from our supplier, Nordic Approach:
This microlot was produced in the village of Gracias Dios, a small community located in the Peruvian Amazon. The area’s main focus is specialty coffee production, while locals process their lots as washed, honey and naturals. The area is covered with a great variety of flora and soil, containing a magnitude of properties suitable for growing coffee. The Carranza Montenegro family settled here over 40 years ago, and have dedicated their lives to cultivating coffee, from generation to generation.
From a small community located in the Amazonas region, this microlot was produced in the caserio (village) of Gracias a Dios. Specialty coffee is commercialised in this area, and it is common to find natural, washed and honey processed lots. Covered in a diverse range of flora, the area’s soil is particularly rich in properties that make it perfect for growing coffee.
The coffees from Gracias a Dios are harvested between March and November. Cherries are selectively hand-picked. This natural lot has been fermented for 72 hours and then dried for 15 days on a solar dryer. The coffee is moved regularly so it can dry evenly and avoid overheating on the base.
Our coffee comes in craft paper bags which contain a plastic liner on the inside to guarantee freshness of our coffee. Please dispose properly at your local plastic trash container. The Village Coffee is roasted fresh every week, and best consumed within four weeks after roast date. Store your coffee in a dry, dark and cool place, avoid the fridge.
