This lot from producer Juan Encalada Sumalave is one of our favorite examples of what a Peruvian coffee can be. It’s a daily drinker that fits solidly within the full-bodied and chocolatey spectrum, but also offers a pleasing, balanced depth that we love. Notes of dark chocolate, macintosh apple, honey, and cinnamon combine to create a cup that's perfect for all types of coffee lovers.

Juan Encalada’s farm is just 5 hectares, and sits at 1,600 MASL. They work with Valle Inca, a producer group that reinvests in the community’s infrastructure to help improve quality and pays higher prices than farmers had access to before; higher prices are crucial not just to the well-being of the community, but also for the growth of quality.
