Peru - Presbitero Herrera Torres - Speciality Coffee Beans - Limited Edition

We have limited supply of this high SCA scoring coffee from Peru, a new origin for us.

Presbitero Herrera Torres owns 3 hectares of land in the village of San Francisco, Huabal district. Presbitero grows mostly caturra, with some old typica plants remaining from before he renovated the farm. Presbitero manages the picking at his farm with the help of his family and hires some seasonal pickers who live in a nearby village. Once picked, Presbitero preferments his coffee in cherry overnight before depulping and fermenting in a tank for 24 hours. The coffee is then washed and placed on tarpaulin mats to dry in the sun, which takes between 10 and 15 days.

Whilst this coffee is not organic certified, Presbitero does not apply any chemical fertiliser, pesticide or fungicide and applies compost mixed with manure as a fertiliser. Huabal is a district within the Jaén province of Cajamarca and is one of our strongest areas for members and quality. Huabal has a huge amount of potential for quality coffee, but due to very poor infrastructure many of the producers lack resources and knowledge to unlock that potential.                                                                                   
Altitudes in the area range from 1200 to 2100masl, but most of the producers we work with are above 1800masl. Many producers in Huabal had been regenerating their farms with catimores, which had been promoted by the government and multinational buyers, and in some altitude ranges have given great results and with good management produce decent cup quality, but in the higher altitudes rarely produce much and the quality is poor. Now with the premiums that they’re receiving for quality, more and more producers are re-planting caturra, bourbon and catuai, which, with good management and fertilization can yield higher and produce much better quality coffee.

Huabal is made up of various villages, which are centres of coffee production and each producer belongs to a village. Since Huabal spans a couple of mountains the climate conditions and soils can vary considerably, with some areas having wet, humid conditions and red, African-like soils and others dry and hot. This all contributes to
diverse and delicious cup profiles and some very complex coffees. 

We have medium roasted this delectable coffee to try to bring out it's unique characteristics; complex tropical fruit flavours, nutmeg, tamarind which remind us of mulled wine. We also get a distinct sherry-like flavour when brewed as a filter which we think is amazing! We think this coffee is suitable for a variety of brew methods, but we've really enjoyed this as a black coffee, although it does pair very nicely with milk. 

Packed and supplied in 100% biodegradable resealable bags and available for you to buy online as whole beans for you to grind yourself, we've also made our Peruvian coffee available to purchase as freshly ground coffee in coarse, medium or fine.

A Peruvian coffee was one of the first I tried from Copper Coffee and it remains one of my favourites - along with Rwandan. Lovely characterful taste, not over-roasted and excellent as the basis for a lovely cappuccino.
