Coffee Profile: Peruvian Micro-Lots

Peru Finca Quellouno & Peru El Triunfo

Here at Speedwell, we are always sourcing new and exciting coffees. We recently selected these two Peruvian coffees from Campesina Mateo, a Peruvian importer aimed supporting small farms with a passion for growing. They have been carefully roasted to bring out their full flavored and complex natural bodies and we are so excited to share them with you. 
Speedwell Coffee Roasters Present Peruvian Microlots Peru Finca Quellouno and  Peru Since El Triunfo

Peru Finca Quellouno

Tasting Notes: Black Currant, Tart Green Apple, & Subtle Citrus Acidity

This micro-lot came from the Peruvian Saxasara Valley, Santa Teresa, La Convention Cusco. The farm, Quellouno, is owned and farmed by Marco Candia and Aide Palomino and their careful attention to the growing process really shines through. 

Speedwell Coffee Roasters Presents Peruvian Microlot #1 Peru Finca Quellouno

Elevation: 2350 - 2450m 

Variety: Red Bourbon 

Process: Washed

Picked at peak ripeness, the fruit of this coffee produces high quality beans with wonderfully complex flavors. Our roaster Dylan loved roasting this coffee. He said, “when coffee grows in higher altitudes, the bean is more dense and has longer to grow and mature, bringing out more complex sugars and flavors.” When we cupped this coffee we loved the green apple notes and the palatable acidity reminiscent of a mandarin orange. The notes of black currant created perfect balance in the body of the coffee. Check it out here.

Peru Finca El Triunfo

Tasting Notes: Tropical Fruit, Cane Sugar, Papaya, & Mango

Our second Peruvian micro-lot comes from the farm, El Triunfo, nestled in the slopes of the Vilcanota valley. The name “El Triunfo” meaning “The triumph” shows our farmer, Mesias Ibarra Munoz’s dedication to the farm’s quality and integrity.
