Peru Apolinar Rafael Espresso (Organic)
- Milk chocolate
- Tangy Acidity
Cafe Imports is partnered with CENFROCAFE, a cooperative that supports nearly 2,000 coffee-growing families.
Through this partnership, Cafe Imports have developed relationships with a small group of producers who have been developing beautiful microlots in the Cajamarca region where they continue to explore the potential of Peruvian specialty coffee.
Producer Apolinar Rafael's farm El Diamante, is one of the highest in the region at 2000 metres. He takes meticulous notes about his fermentation for each lot, but typically picks his coffee selectively, depulps it the same day, and ferments it for about 30 hours, then dries it under solar covers for 15 days.
Apolinar is constantly working on fermentation experiments in an attempt to improve quality and consistency. Cafe Imports certify ALL their offerings from Peru as a way to give back to the farmers.
