The popularity of the organic Peruvian coffee has put Peru on the world map. Many people would not have heard much about this tiny country which is located in South America squeezed between Ecuador and Chile without the intervention of their coffee, which is today considered to be the best.
What Makes The Organic Peruvian Coffee The Best?
There are two things that contribute to the amazing and unparalleled taste of organic Peruvian coffee – one, it is organically grown since 1700 AD and the technique that the farmers use has been handed over by word of mouth from generation to generation; and two, there is no interference yet from modern technology on any of the 110 thousand coffee farms in Peru. The combined effect of these two factors is that the organic Peruvian coffee has a remarkable taste the richness of which no one has yet been able to copy.
The farms where the coffee is grown are small, about 2-3 acres each where the farmers work hard to uphold the amazing quality of the crop using exclusively indigenous methods. Each farm is equipped with a micro-wet milling system which is yet another effort to keep Peru free form any type of chemical pollution.
