This is a very sweet espresso that has a bit of light caramel and dried stone fruit in the mix. As an espresso there is a deep fruited awesomeness, and with a bit of caramel and milk chocolate. This coffee finishes so clean, leaving behind traces of raw honey and Swiss cocoa on the pallet.

Peru FTO Sonccoi Production
This micro-lot coffee was produced by Flavio Ccori Sonccoi, and is from the Puno region of Peru. Flavio is a member of the Inambari Cooperative, which is part of a larger cooperative union. The union has eight total cooperatives under it's umbrella. He grows primarily Bourbon on the farm with some Caturra mixed in. At 4 bags total, this is a tiny lot and represents all the specialty grade coffee he produced this year. Wet milling occurs using fairly 'traditional' techniques for this region, with hand-crank depulping devices, single tank fermentation and washing, and then often drying the coffee on covered beds (the weather can be unpredictable in the region). Inambari, working in coordination with the other seven cooperatives, have been able to set up their own dry milling facility and the ability to export their own coffees through the union.
This coffee is roasted to order within 24-48 hours of order. We recommend 2 days rest after roast, so this will be ready to drink when you receive it.
Peru covers 1,285,216 km2 (496,225 sq mi) of western South America. It borders Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil to the east, Bolivia to the southeast, Chile to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The Andes Mountains run parallel to the Pacific Ocean; they define the three regions traditionally used to describe the country geographically. The costa (coast), to the west, is a narrow plain, largely arid except for valleys created by seasonal rivers. The sierra (highlands) is the region of the Andes; it includes the Altiplano plateau as well as the highest peak of the country, the 6,768 m (22,205 ft) Huascarán. The third region is the selva (jungle), a wide expanse of flat terrain covered by the Amazon rainforest that extends east. Almost 60 percent of the country's area is located within this region.
Most Peruvian rivers originate in the peaks of the Andes and drain into one of three basins. Those that drain toward the Pacific Ocean are steep and short, flowing only intermittently. Tributaries of the Amazon River are longer, have a much larger flow, and are less steep once they exit the sierra. Rivers that drain into Lake Titicaca are generally short and have a large flow. Peru's longest rivers are the Ucayali, the Marañón, the Putumayo, the Yavarí, the Huallaga, the Urubamba, the Mantaro, and the Amazon.
