Coffee from Peru is known for its smooth, balanced flavor profile and medium acidity. It is often described as having notes of chocolate, nuts, and caramel, as well as a slight citrus tang. The flavor of Peruvian coffee is influenced by the country's diverse geography and climate, which ranges from the hot, humid Amazon rainforest to the cooler, drier Andean highlands.
Peruvian coffee is grown in a number of different regions within the country, including the Amazonas, Cusco, Junín, and San Martín regions. It is typically grown at high altitudes, between 3,000 and 6,000 feet above sea level, on small family-owned farms. The coffee plants are grown in a mix of sun and shade, and are often intercropped with other crops such as bananas, citrus, and avocados.
Peruvian coffee is typically harvested by hand, and is wet processed, meaning that the coffee cherries are fermented to remove the outer layers of fruit before the beans are dried and roasted. The resulting coffee is known for its balanced, smooth flavor and medium body, making it a popular choice for both drip and espresso-based drinks.
