A smooth body, mild acidity and classic flavors: Walnut, chocolate, nougat and raisin. Essentially, a candy bar. The chasquis were the messengers of the Inca empire, the fittest and most highly trained individuals; the best of the best. They would not only run messages across great distances and topographies but could read and translate and helped to keep order. This coffee is a collection of lots from around Peru that, like its namesake, are the best of the best. Coffee cherries were machine cleaned and processed, and after the coffee was dried it was sorted by color and density to ensure that only the best beans remained.

In the land of the Incas, in the thin air of the Andean peaks, coffee matures slowly and sugars settle deep, producing incredibly sweet beans, punctuated by a sparkling acidity that’s a signature of Peru. Coffees here are generally shade grown; selectively harvested, with a complete harvest sometimes requiring five passes; and pulped, fermented and processed in artisanal wet mills on the farms. Prodelsur, our sister company in Peru, focuses on three regions for us: the rugged, remote Satipo, in the south; and Chontali and Santo Domingo de la Capilla in the northwest.
