This FTO Peruvian coffee is sourced through cooperatives. The coffee is grown at altitudes above 1250 masl and is predominantly a mix of Bourbon, Typica and Caturra varietals although in some areas Pache and Geisha trees can also be found. Peru is one of the world’s top Fairtrade Organic producing origin. Farmers grow Inga trees to provide shade for their coffee, these trees attract hummingbirds, parrots, warblers and tanagers. The farmers also maintain small nurseries on their farms to raise seedlings to replace aging trees.
How to roast:
There are a number of ways to roast these at home.
For the serious hobbyist, purchase a professional roasting machine for a few hundred dollars and follow the instructions.
If you wish to ‘dabble’ and roast on the cheap with excpetional results, we recommend one of the following methods:
1. Buy a popcorn machine.
Put about 50-70g of raw beans inside and turn it on.
In 5 to 10 minutes or so you will have a great result (depending on the brand/heat of the machine).
2. Use a deep metal mixing bowl and clamp a heat gun to a retort stand (or hold in your hand).
Make sure that the beans are in constant movement (swirling around the container).
Note: Hairdryers are not suitable – they are not hot enough.
Hint: Do this outside as the chaff will blow everywhere.
DOCUMENTATION & EXPERIMENTATION are the key to consistent results.
You need to do this for EVERY origin of bean, as the different origins have different sizes and different moisture contents
