Peruvian Coffee at Whole Foods

Postby Arroz con Pollo » Fri Sep 13, 2013 12:37 pm

Here is some coffee I have been buying at Whole Foods in Orange County, CA. It's usually roasted same day or at most 1 day prior to my purchase. It's fantastic brewed in an Aeropress and using a manual hand burr grinder. Anyway I'm curious if anyone knows where this coffee might be sourced in Peru?

its actually from Namballe, Peru. San Ignacio is where all the coffee brokers store it prior to shipping to Puerto Callao for export. Jaen, is also another area where it is stored for further processing (hulling) before shipping.
The Namballe area is where i get mine, directly from the grower. Good stuff :D

Great info, thanks :) It is very good stuff. I am getting so spoiled drinking coffee with roasted dates < 2-3 days. This Peruvian/Mexican blend sells out quite a bit which is good for Peru.

i'm spoiled too! cant even imagine going back to a lesser tasting coffee. have you tried the Peru/Mex blend?
some roasts peak between 7-14 days for best flavor, so keep that in mind before rippin that bag open!

Slightly off topic but, what's happened to our very own coffee entrepreneur, Philip :?: He's been AWOL for a week.

I have and it's wonderful. I'll keep that in mind about the peak time and try it farther out.

Didn't know about the 7-14 days post roasting. Thanks for the info.
