Sagebrush Unroasted

Peru Lima Cajamarca Gold Label | Green Coffee Beans


Recommended Roast Level:

Dark (Full City Plus)

Tasting Notes:

We love the rich, caramel notes in this Peruvian coffee, mixed with the nutty sweetness and juicy mouthfeel. Similar to a ripe apple or pear. It produces a beautifully balanced cup, with a dark, complex body. As we sampled this coffee along the different roast profiles, we found a wide range of flavor notes.  Which we believe is a testimony to the quality of this coffee. We could've launched this coffee as a fruited light roast or as a complex medium roast, but we decided that it really shines roasted dark, showing off the delicious caramelized and nutty flavors. This coffee is the perfect way to start your day!

Lima Coffees Coffee Production:

Rony Lavan is an ambitious and quality-driven cupper who has spent his career trying to carve out better and bolder coffees from small producers in Peru. While the country is emerging as a specialty market after many years of focusing on bigger lots and certifications, Rony's passion is with identifying and developing the top scores and the best cups.

As president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony has already established himself as standing at the fore of micro lot-quality coffees in Cajamarca. His first year with Lima Coffees, he entered the national competition and won; with the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings. Rony and his coffees will be the ones to watch.
