We’re delighted to introduce this beautiful coffee from Quillabamba, a coffee-growing region in the southern highlands of Peru that we discovered during a recent trip with our sourcing partners at Caravela Coffee. Our green buying team tasted various lots from individual producers in the region and were struck by the quality of the coffees and the stories of the individuals who produced them.
This lot, named for the ancient Wari civilization that once flourished in the coastal and highland areas of Peru, is clean, complex, balanced and sweet. With notes of dried papaya, raisin, and milk chocolate, the cup profile of Espíritu Wari reflects the magic and beauty of the region’s history and the people who continue to cultivate its fertile slopes today.
