We’ve been in love with Peru for a couple of years now and we think it’s time for you to fall in love, too. This country brings forth some of the most amazing coffees that we’ve ever tasted and we want you to enjoy them, too. This Tasting Box offers three completely different coffees from different regions of Peru: Rosas Pata from the south, Agua de Nieve from central Peru and the beautiful Finca Aladino from the north.

Flavour profile

The world of coffee is amazing, don’t you think? Even within the same continent, origin, altitude, varieties or processing, there are a great many things that set coffees apart from each other. We’ve decided to showcase these similarities and/or differences, by offering a trio of great coffees that will help you discover all that coffee has to offer.

Our journey in flavour takes us to the highlands of Peru, where we’ll be exploring three different regions and find out what makes them unique and versatile.

The story – the farm

The first stop? Finca Aladino at 1871-2100 meters high in the north of Peru for a taste of the Aladino micro lot. This micro lot is a mix of caturra and tabi, processed semi-carbonically for 96 hours, and tastes like rum raisins, cranberry and sugarcane.

Our second stop: Agua de Nieve in the middle of Peru, situated at 1800-2000 meters above sea level. Agua de Nieve is a coffee we’re very familiar with as it’s one of our direct trade partners. Expect to find lychee, milk chocolate and red grapes in your cup!

And finally, our last coffee comes from Rosas Patas, located in the south of Peru near the Bolivian border. The farm is located at 1600 meters, which makes it the lowest altitude coffee in this box, but don’t think this coffee is any less delicious than its partners: Earl Grey, dark chocolate and blood orange are just a few examples of what to look for in this wonderful fully washed lot.

    Very nice selection of coffee. I’ve been jumping back and forth, between filter and espresso roasts to get the most out of my moka pot (note, i’ve upgraded mine with a competition filter), and going with filter for these was definitely worth it. I mostly drink black when I dial in, and then I make some milk drinks with them.

    Agua de Nieve:
    I really enjoyed this one for moka in espresso roast already, but brewing it with filter roast made the more fruity, acidic notes pop a little more. Opening the bag, the milk chocolate notes hits you like a bomb. In the brew itself the chocolate turns more towards a cacao kind of note, much darker. There’s some herbally fruity notes in here as well, and it has good body. The strong chocolate aromas and cacao notes make this an excellent coffee to pair with milk.

    Rosas Pata:

    I’ve found this coffee to be quite “bourbon-forward”, with that characteristic savory flavor, so this isn’t a great pair with milk. The coffee on it’s own is very herbal. For me, the bergamot/earl grey notes stood out the most, with some of the lemongrassy/orangy flavors coming out later. The savoryness from the bourbon combined with the orange made me think of duck a l’orange hahaha. Very interesting coffee.

    Finca Aladino:

    For me, this was the second anaerobic coffee I’ve ever had, with the first one being the Frinsa from Indonesia. I like funky notes in my coffee, but sometimes the Frinsa got a little much for me. This one is much more subtle, similar notes but fruitier. I feel like I’d order this one again to experiment more as I had a really hard time dialing it in, this was the first time that I brewed with a high altitude coffee. Normally, in a moka pot, you’d fill the coffee till the basket is full, but this coffee EXPANDS like crazy. It’s also really dense, so weighing out my regular 28.5 grams that I use for most coffees resulted in seemingly way too little, so I ground more to fill the basket, only to find the brew almost seizing up. The puck was almost impossible to remove from the basket later, because the coffee had expanded so much.

    However, when I finally had things dialled in, on a relatively fine grind setting for moka, using about 5% more coffee by weight, (i went from 28.5 usually to using 30 grams).
    The coffee tastes pleasantly rummy, i’ve found the sugar cane notes to be the most prominent, with the raisin part of the rum raisin taking a backseat and leaving a mostly rum-like experience. Another thing about this coffee is that it’s… greasy, I never thought I’d describe a coffee this way but it’s true. I mostly brewed this coffee black, it has great body and you can see the drops of oil shimmering on the surface. It’s a good thing (trust me) ((i swear))

    Overall, i’ve been very happy with all the coffees. It’s always a good time tinkering around and trying to get the most out of the coffee.

    I’m already excited for the next box to come out!

    Much love, Sas
