Peru Organic Lot #86

Blackberry and fresh cream lept out in the break after an intense dark sugar sweetness wafting the crust before it. It was so sweet it reminded me of blackberry syrup. The malic juiciness and brown sugar sweetness did really well at the City level. Although still pleasant Puno Lot #86 turns almost unilaterally into bittersweet cacao at the City + level. The finish on all of the Puno lots have been reminiscent of creamy hot chocolate and this coffee is no exception. City to City+.

This Lot #86 is one that we constructed here in the lab from 8 total producers in the Puno region. The farms in this area are some of the highest we deal with peaking at over 2000 masl. Crops are mostly planted in Typica, but with a small amount of Caturra and Catimor intermixed. These farms are small in their own right, and downright miniscule in comparison to the farm giants that dominate Central America. Most in the region are no larger than 2 hectares, which makes it easy (and not to mention sensible) to do all the processing in-house. Manual cranked depulpers are the preferred method of removing the cherry skin. One small tank is used for both fermentation and washing, and then the parchment is patio-dried. Puno is one of the crown jewels of the coffee world, of which this lot truly represents.
Peru Puno lot #86 is a coffee driven by its sweetness. Ripe red fruits like currants and raspberry as well as darker blueberry and walnut perfume the fragrance of the dry grounds. Blackberry and fresh cream lept out in the break after an intense dark sugar sweetness wafting the crust before it. It was so sweet it reminded me of blackberry syrup. This is a coffee that will disappear in a darker roast. The malic juiciness and brown sugar sweetness did really well at the City level. Although still pleasant, Puno Lot #86 turns almost unilaterally into bittersweet cacao at the City + level. The finish on all of the Puno lots have been reminiscent of creamy hot chocolate and this coffee is no exception.
