This is a coffee grown high in the Andes in far north Peru, with a special program close to our hearts. We roast this high grown bean expertly, which holds the clean acidity of capsicum and plummy tastes. This cuts the milk, yet develops smooth body that holds long on the palate with red wine Cabernet notes and finishes with the touch of dark chocolate. This is one of our most popular coffees for use at home in a plunger or filter, but shines in complexity with an espresso extraction.

Our Peru Café Femenino Fairtrade Organic Certified Swiss Water Processed Carbon Neutral coffee needs a long black to enable anyone to say it! The beans are exactly the same beans as our regular Café Femenino from the Penachi Coop.

The origin is in the very high altitude of the Andes in remote far north of Peru. Every year, the Women coffee producers celebrate their coffee with an Organic Coffee Festival where small pantomimes about coffee stories are judged. Traditional regional costumes are worn with pride, and the Coffee Queen is announced. We hope they don’t mind that we also celebrate their silky soft sweet coffee, even without caffeine!

Why you'll love it

You'll enjoy a delectable brew with a lovely smooth nutty flavour - and put money in the pockets of female farmers. Rich and rewarding, with notes of blueberry and dark chocolate.
