ORGANIC PERU – San Ignacio
Taste Notes: Plum, Cocoa nibs, Toffee
Producer: Aprocassi, San Ignacio
Varietal: Red Honey
Since 2022, we have been collaborating closely with Aprocassi. Located on the border of Ecuador their remarkable journey of dedication and resilience has been a source of inspiration for us. Notably, their coffee, which thrives in the region’s ideal climate, has become the cornerstone of our Organic Glasshouse blend. This unique blend brings together the finest elements of Aprocassi’s harvest, encapsulating the rich flavours of their coffee beans cultivated amidst the diverse habitat of tapirs, toucans, deer, and the moor owl.
In the early history of Aprocassi, its members demonstrated their dedication and resolve by overcoming a significant challenge that nearly led to the cooperative’s downfall in 2005. During a critical harvest period, two entire containers of coffee were stolen while en route to the port. However, through collaborative efforts to mitigate the losses, the members forged a stronger commitment to the cooperative.
