In the Southern Highlands of Peru lies an absolutely magical expanse of coffee producing land - the Cusco region. Within the Cusco region lies the Yanatile district, and within the Yanatile district there exists the ideal conditions for producing stellar coffee. Many farms are nestled over 2000 MASL in the mountains, and the valley boasts an arid climate that is perfect for drying and storing parchment. This is very beneficial for the shelf life of the green coffees - a slow and even drying process without excess moisture in the air means that coffees from this area are going to be very stable and taste vibrant for many months after they are harvested.
Benigno manually depulp and process their coffee by hand. The care and attention to detail in every aspect of harvest and processing translates directly to how clean and sweet this coffee is in the cup. Highly sweet and approachable throughout, while simultaneously offering a complexity of flavors as it cools and evolves in the cup. We’re tasting: milk chocolate, vanilla, honey, apple, pear, plum, cherry, clementine, orange blossom, nougat, marzipan.
