Milk chocolate and vanilla set the tone in this incredibly smooth and creamy La Coipa. But if you thought this would be a one-note coffee, you’re sorely mistaken! Vanilla and chocolate make way for plum, followed by Darjeeling, crisp red apple, sweet caramel and a delicate floral finish. La Coipa makes for a complex and bright, clean cup with a creamy mouthfeel that has you wanting for more, always.

La Coipa is a district in the San Ignacio province in Peru; a mountainous region in the very north of Peru, near the Ecuadorian border. It’s high altitude and climate make coffee production optimal here, resulting in coffees with mellow but complex flavours and a lovely creamy mouthfeel. We were impressed by La Coipa’s beautiful acidity, the bold yet smooth flavours and the floral finish. Plus, La Coipa ticks one more box on our wish list: it is 100% Organic!

All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped whole bean to ensure maximum freshness.

The story – the farm

Hello to our newest Peruvian coffee! La Coipa is a wonderful lot coming from a collective production area of 35 families, run by Aroma del Valle, which is an association focused on improving coffee quality by enhancing drying practices. In 2019, Aroma del Valle provided materials for the construction of a larger drying space. The lot that was dried in that space ended up on the cupping table of Lisanne Oonk, trader from Cultivar with whom we’ve collaborated before to set up our direct trading relationship with Agua de Nieve.

This project is the result of a collaboration with Lisanne Oonk. Lisanne, a trader from Cultivar, worked with the farmers to improve the quality of their coffees and bought their first harvests with her own savings. Her passion for this project is what made us confident to invest and work alongside her. We’re so proud to play a role in Peru’s specialty coffee revolution.
