Five Ways Coffee Roasters

Peru - San Ignacio - Natural

$16.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This lot is a blend of day lots from producers in the San Ignacio districts of Chirinos, San Jose de Lourdes, and Tabaconas. The producers in these areas pick and process their coffee themselves, and typically dry the coffee on a lined patio. After being picked, the coffee is rested for 24 hours before being dried for 25-30 days. The main varieties grown are caturra, bourbon, catuai, and typica.

These three districts are among the most promising quality areas in all of Latin America, with high altitudes and ideal growing conditions. Since these day lots were very small, we couldn't export them as individual lots. Therefore, we created this blend with all of the day lots that matched this heavily fruited, complex, and floral cup profile.

Alongside Honduras, Peru has historically been regarded as the discount Latin American origin of unremarkable and often unreliable quality. This reputation and its accompanying price discount are the results of supply chains focused on large volumes based on aggregated quality, built to serve roasters seeking value over remarkable coffee. This happens at the expense of Peruvian farmers who don’t reap the rewards of higher income through improved quality.

We believe that Peru has the potential to match up on quality to any of its origin counterparts in Latin America. We set out to prove this.

The altitude of the Andes combined with rich volcanic soils and tropical rainfall means that Peru has the ideal topography and climate for producing high quality Arabica coffee. We identified the problem as post-harvest processing. Farmers had received little to no training on the chemistry and precision required to maximise the quality of their coffees. We realised that if we provided training that demanded attention to detail, we would need to offer the financial incentive to reward those farmers who made the effort.

  1. Choose the right container: It's important to store your coffee beans in an airtight container. Look for a container made of a material that won't absorb odors, like glass or ceramic. Avoid using plastic containers, as they can impart a plastic-like taste to the coffee.
  2. Keep the container away from light: Coffee beans are sensitive to light, which can cause them to degrade more quickly. Store your coffee container in a dark place, such as a pantry or cupboard.
  3. Keep the container away from heat: Heat can also cause coffee beans to degrade. Avoid storing your coffee container near a heat source, such as a stove or oven.
  4. Store at room temperature: Coffee beans should be stored at room temperature, between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid storing coffee beans in the refrigerator or freezer, as moisture can cause them to spoil and lose their flavor.
  5. Use whole beans: It's best to store whole coffee beans rather than ground coffee. Ground coffee has a larger surface area, which makes it more vulnerable to oxidation and degradation.
  6. Avoid air exposure: Exposure to air can cause coffee beans to oxidize, which can lead to a stale or sour taste

Our Roastery

You'll find us in Amsterdam West, where we roast on a Giesen W15 and a Loring S35 Kestrel. These beauties give us total control over our roasts, the freedom to tweak to optimise flavour and the ability to roast at volume, allowing us to cater to a variety of customers.

From day one all we wanted to do was source, roast, brew and serve the best coffee we could find.

Our aim is to highlight the terroir of the origin and different processes utilised. We also often select unique and exotic coffees which force us to grow and challenge our way of thinking.
