ABOUT THE COFFEE

Peru Sandia Valley

Delia Capquique Quispe

Sandia Valley is a municipality in the Puno region of southeastern Peru, not far from Lake Titicaca. Within this massive expanse lie many smaller valleys, each hosting unique communities of coffee-producing smallholder farmers. Much of Sandia Valley grows Bourbon-variety coffee thanks to a replanting project led by the United Nations in the 1980s, lending the landscape’s crops a distinct flavor profile. Typical of the region, our selection presents a deeply sweet, full-bodied coffee with a clean and elegant acidity.

Despite the UN’s efforts and our exporting partners’ work in the region, coffee farming continues to dwindle in Sandia Valley. We’re grateful to be able to savor the flavors from this region for another season.
