The next addition to our Limited Single Origin Series is a "fruit bomb" from Sol y Cafe in Peru. Sol y Cafe has produced some great coffees over the years, but this one is our fave. This fully-washed gem is roasted light to accentuate notes of apricot, orange, and Tang. This coffee is limited in supply, so grab some while it is available!
Sol y Café was founded in 2005, with support from the Caritas Jaen technical team. They quickly moved to acquire the necessary organic and sustainable trading certificates to sell into North America and Europe and grew from their initial 27 clusters of producer base groups to more than 60 producer associations bringing together some 1,000 farmer families. They continue to share an office space in the Caritas complex in Jaen, where they maintain a small warehouse and quality control lab.
