This Peruvian coffee comes from the centrally located in the Chanchamayo Valley, one of the country's major growing regions. This area produces 40% of the country's total crop. The farms belong to small producers with less than two hectares of land. This coffee is shade-grown at high altitudes in order to produce a denser bean and a more complex cup characteristic as a result of its slow maturation process. In addition, the producers have made a remarkable effort to produce a high quality bean by only using sustainable farming practices.
SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude above 1350 meters.
