Isn’t that what every coffee nut knows? Nostrils then mouth — hopefully in that order. In this post we’ll take a look at one of our selected roasts, lesser known but very flavorful — Peruvian Coffee. Actually we’re nuts about most coffees, but they must be prepared with a certain expertise as they are by our Select Coffee Roasters..
Peruvian Coffee Beans
Peruvian: It’s the altitude! Peruvian coffees are grown high in the Andes Mountains making for exceptional bright effervescent snap, a gentle sweetness, and medium body. It’s easy to grow an attitude about altitude when you’re in the Nut Hut, or anywhere else for that matter. You might not have heard much about coffees of Peru because the other South Americans do more advertising, but when you try one — you’re in for a pleasant reward. Cup Profile: Sweet, Bright, with Medium Body.
Most of our Select Roasters a Peruvian roast, and Coffee Bean Direct (just click and then search on “Peruvian”) offers wholesale pricing for both roasted and green beans for home roasters. Here’s how they describe their “Peruvian High Grown” beans (above): This versatile coffee bean is grown in high altitude regions in Peru. Moderately acidic with a soft body and flavor, this bean is ideal as a blending coffee and make for an excellent evening brew. It has a slightly nutty flavor quality to it, much like other South and Central American coffees, but softer. This variety of Peru is light-roasted to retain the delicate balance inherent in the beans.”
