We're delighted that three sacks of Sol y Cafe green coffee has finally arrived. This Peruvian Coffee is produced by a Co-op of over 1000 farmers in the northern Peruvian provinces of San Ignacio and Jaen. About 10% of the members are women. The Co-op was formed in 2008 to promote development with an emphasis on sustainability and preservation of the environment.
The coffee is grown at altitudes of 3000 to 6000 feet, and is certified as organic by USDA and BioLatina. It has also earned certification from the Rainforest Alliance, as well as Fair Trade (FLO).
As for the coffee - smooth, fruity and well-balanced are some of the words that describe it.
If you would like to know more about this remarkable coffee, we invite you to watch the video (English subtitles) or better still, come visit us next Sunday, September 28th for "From Bean to Cup - the Alchemy of Coffee Roasting". It's being held here at Bogart's Bay in collaboration with Culture Days and is an opportunity to see some being roasted, followed by a free tasting. Click here for details.
