Peru is working towards becoming a specialty market after many years of focusing on bigger lots and certifications.
We're working to identify and carry some of the top-scoring coffees from Peru. The president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization is Rony Lavan. He has established himself at the forefront of the micro lot-quality coffees in Cajamarca. In 2017 The Peru Cup of Excellence competition was introduced and Lima Coffees entered and won.
We believe that Peru is a country to watch, specifically Lima Coffees, for having some of the finest offerings.
The harvest period for Peru is June - September. New crops typically arrive between January and June. This particular coffee landed in late February 2021 at our US port.
