Cooperative de Servicios Múltiples Aprocassi (Aprocassi) is composed of over 400 small-scale coffee growers. Founded in 2000, they even developed their own financing arm (Aprocredit), to help associates cover unexpected costs or invest in farm improvements. Through this community-based groups, these producers have been able to seek out specialty markets for their coffee and continue to increase quality through farm improvements and cupping individual producer lots.
This is the second year we’ve featured this coffee on our menu. When we tasted it for the first time, we decided to name it La Flor del Guayacán because of its beautiful vibrancy. Peruvian coffees continue to exceed expectations year after year and this is no exception.
