The Regional Select program highlights the unique profiles that are inherent to various microclimates in many of the countries from which we source green coffee. Regional Select offerings are sourced based on cup quality and character, seeking a balance of “taste of place” with local variables like wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influencers.
As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: Its high elevation; prominence of good varieties like Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra; and a quality-focused movement among smallholder growers, especially in cooperatives utilizing organic husbandry, is very encouraging for the future recognition these lots will deservedly receive.
