We welcome this excellent offering from Peru to the Roastery!
This Peruvian El Gallito coffee is a fantastic all rounder and suitable for all brew methods. In your cup, you can expect a smooth and creamy body with hints of caramel, baked apple and peach.
Grown at high altitudes in the San Ignacio district of Peru, this micro lot has been specially developed by the farmers to produce a high scoring, fruit forward, elegant coffee that can be produced year upon year.
The coffee has been aptly named after the El Gallito de las Rocas, translated to the cock-of-the-rock bird which can be found flying over the higher altitude coffee producing areas and is also widely regarded as the national bird of Peru.
