Ancelmo Vera - Peru

Pack Size

'We are LOVING this coffee. It's beautifully balanced and clean, with intriguing complexity that keeps us coming back for more.'

Peru continues to surprise with the sheer depth and variety of the coffee that gets produced there and this lot is a great example of some of the fruity, more complex lots we've been tasting this year.

In the cup, you'll instantly find wonderful tropical fruit notes. It's subtle, sweet and clean, but just gives that light fruitiness that makes this particular lot shine. It doesn't matter how you brew it either. The roast isn't too light, so the gentle acidity is easily manageable, even in espresso and the coffee remains balanced and delicious, whether you add milk or not. As brewed, you just get lovely, well-balanced complexity and if you're anything like us, you'll not be able to leave this one alone!

Mr. Ancelmo Vera has been a coffee farmer for around 25 years, managing his farm, El Cedro, in Huabal, located in the picturesque region known as El Paraiso. El Cedro spans 2.75 hectares, sits at an altitude of 1850 meters above sea level (MASL), and yields about 1.3 metric tons per hectare. Due to the high altitude, the coffee cherries ripen over an extended period, from late May to September.

Ancelmo shares his coffee-growing knowledge with his family members who work on the farm. Over the last three years, they've focused on specialty coffee production, reinvesting the profits in improving their drying facilities, such as tents. These improvements help mitigate the unpredictable weather challenges faced during the coffee drying process, particularly during the harvest season.

El Paraiso is an ideal region for coffee cultivation, but its remote location presents challenges, including high transportation costs to Jaen for their coffee. Ancelmo and his family remain dedicated to producing quality coffee despite these obstacles.
