Peru Rancho Sabancaya is sourced from Norandino, an umbrella organization established in 2005 to support a sustainable coffee supply from three cooperatives (Cepicafe, Cenfrocafe, and Sol y Café) in the northern regions of Peru. Collectively these cooperatives have a total of 7000 members who cultivate 25,000 acres of coffee across Piura, Cajamarca, Amazonas, and San Martin. Noradino aims to promote fair trade, sustainable development, and organic farming practices while improving the quality of life of its members. Coffee farmers receive training in land management, irrigation, storage, organic practices, efficiency, quality control, and reforestation, invaluable tools, ensuring the utmost product quality in a competitive market.
Cultivated at elevations of 1100-1700 meters, this medium-bodied coffee features aromas of dark chocolate, tobacco, cigar box, and caramel. The moderate acidity perfectly complements the blackberry and brown sugar flavors and the maple and nougat notes throughout the finish.
