Try "Leche Fresca de Vaca" it is the milk recently obtained from the Cow . In Arequipa, try in the outskirts of the City

Just boiled it and drink with "cafe pasado" - tasty !

jumpin , Your level of misinformation amaze me.

Coffee in Peru is very cheap. Peru is one of the top coffee producer in the World.

There are a lot of place where you can get a real cup of coffee obtained from grains of coffee . Have you heard the name "taza de cafe pasado" ?

Nope never heard of it, then again I do not speak Spanish nor am I experienced as you think you are. I can only offer up my experience. As I said, I rarely drink coffee in a restaurant or otherwise. Sorry I seem to have offended you.

jumpin, sorry if my comments makes you think that I was offended

Coffee in Peru is not as popular as in Colombia

It is very popular to drink a cup of coffee - cafe pasado - with a tasty "sandwich de chicharron con camote" ...

There are several places we can get recently ground coffee grains, one of them is located at Risso in Lince , Lima

jumpin,

We also might get a coffee brand as "CAFETAL"everywhere, it is not so good as recently ground coffee, but better than Nescafe

I am sure it is good, it better be because it costs about twice as much as I would pay for the coffee I enjoyed in the US.

And even that price is a bit high for the quality since that's more of a name brand here in Peru.

At a place like Minka you can get 1KG of really fresh full bean coffee direct from producers in Villa Rica for 20 soles or so and they'll grind it for you in front of you so you know they aren't putting any extra fillers in it.

Coffee in Peru is extremely well priced for the quality, probably second best in the world only to Colombia in my opinion.

That is a US website ! ! ! Sorry but I have no way to check its prices because have no account with them..

But as you wrote..... , $3.33 per pound sound a bit overpriced..

One question my friend. Do you drink coffee in Peru, other than the "Nescafe instant coffee" ?

Yes it is a US site. Where else would I go to demonstrate coffee in the US is cheaper?
I was making the point that coffee is expensive in Peru given the 2 examples you gave. Retail coffee in Peru cost more than coffee in the US. Point being, you would think coffee cheaper in Peru. With your 2 examples you proved that not to be true, coffee is more expensive in Peru.
I have had Altomayo which is very comparable to the cheap coffee in the US and cost more than the comparable brand in the US.
Yes 3.33 a pound next to the Altomayo example you provided at 3.40 per pound.
You do not need an account to check prices, I too do not have an account. I will take your last question as rhetorical.
Anything else?

but in Peru the price is 3.4 usd per 500 grams (not per pound)

And considering that 1 pound = 453 grms (not 500 grms)

Applying simply mathematics 3.4 usd/500grams x 453 grams/pound = 3 usd per pound (cost in Peru)

There is something I agree with you... in Peru should be even cheaper than 3usd/pound, because we are producer.. so thanks for the enlightenment in this topic

Well Glory Be you finally paid attention!!!! You should take a lil Miller Time once in a while. That "taza de cafe pasado".
Coffee, it would seem, looking at you, to make one uptight, overly excitable and a bit supercilious.
BTW this is not a coffee thread either, you may want to direct me there. Don't wanna get in trouble, heaven forbid.

Peru is definitely not a top coffee producer in the World. Peru producers approx 200,000 mt of green beans annually which does not even get it a place in the top 10 of bean producers. Where Peru does shine is as specialty coffee producer, especially organic fair trade coffee. It has won several prices. Coffee from Chanchamayo is excellent. 100% of all the quality coffee is exported. Afaik none of the specialty coffee is sold for local consumption. Personally I find the local brands a disgrace for Peru's coffee. I you really like coffee then contact one of the organic producers and buy a large back of green beans and roast yourself. You will not regret it.

There are some few high quality coffee producer in Peru and they sold in the local market.

To anyone who is interested in learning more, could visit Ferias de Productos Agropecuarios that are organized regularly along the year..

ExpoCafe is also a good place to know more
