Peruvian Chasqui, Single-Origin Gourmet Coffee (Arabica)
A smooth medium 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 of the best beans remained.
