Brewing instructions
Description

Coffees from Peru appear to be getting better with each passing year. Our Peruvian Coffee stands testament to the country’s achievements in the world of Coffee. This particular brew makes an excellent After Dinner Coffee, especially when served by Cafetiere. It has a mild acidity and a hint of nuttiness, ensuring it to be a smooth winner every time.

It is one of our favourite Coffees. Is it one of yours, too? Find out today with our Peruvian Coffee, find out again tomorrow, and find out time and time again! We guarantee you won’t be disappointed, particularly because all of our Coffees are roasted using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the beans.

Ultimately, this ensures both quality and consistency. Furthermore, all of our Coffees are packed fresh to order here in our Pluckley-based factory, which is nestled away within the enchanting vistas of the Kentish countryside. What’s not to like about Peruvian Coffee you might ask? The answer is absolutely nothing!

What do you need to know about Peruvian Coffee? According to some statistics, Peru produces no more than 3% of the world’s Coffee; compare that to its continental counterpart, Brazil, which in 2017, produced approximately 40% of the world’s Coffee.

But what it lacks in size it makes up in quality. However, quality has, admittedly, only very recently been a word used to describe Peru’s Coffee Industry. The country, until the 1990’s, had a somewhat diminished part to play in Coffee trade owing to political and social turbulence. But this has all changed. Today, Peru’s Coffee is a brew to be proud of. So, how did it come to be?

Coffee arrived in Peru via neighbouring Ecuador during the mid-18th Century but wasn’t commercially exported until the late-19th Century. Even then, it wasn’t for another 100 years until production increased significantly. At first, like much of Latin America’s early associations with Coffee, the industry was largely in the hands of the wealthy, most of whom were European elites. However, as workers migrated from other areas of Peru to provide labour on farmers, they began to gain experience, and in turn, exert independence, which was relatively easy owing to an abundance of potential Coffee-growing land.

During the 1950s and 60s, the Peruvian government engaged in land reform and encouraged Coffee cultivation as part of a set of socio-economic development measures, which in turn led to a demographic shift within the Industry. Small-scale, native farmers found themselves responsible for the majority of the country’s Coffee production. Soon after, the left-leaning military dictatorships, though harmful to the nation in a multitude of ways, further bolstered the profile of smallholder farmers - arguably one of the only potentially positive legacies of the era.

Nevertheless, Peruvian Coffee lacked the quality of other Latin American producers such as Brazil and Colombia. Today, this has changed dramatically. Now, after many decades of vast improvement within the country’s Industry, Peruvian Coffee has finally earned the respect of Coffee Connoisseurs around the world.

Origin: Peru, South America.
