A delicate & sweet Peru Medium Roast Coffee
This Peru Medium Roast coffee is grown in the cool jungle of San Martin de Pangoa in Peru by the Machiguenga First Nation people. The slow-ripening coffee beans bring a delicate acidity, medium body and floral and berry notes in your cup. The Peru Medium Roast coffee is a sweet, crisp coffee with a bright, citrus-hinted entry, delicate cocoa notes, and a clean fruity finish. The Fairtrade premiums from the purchase of this coffee go to projects such as ecotourism to supplement coffee production, domestic sales of roasted coffee, and educational funds.
What is direct Fair Trade?
Level Ground Trading uses direct Fair Trade to source their ingredients. This means, that they import their products directly and travel to the countries where they’re grown. They connect with small-scale farmers face-to-face and establish long-term relationships. In their company history, they have consistently given more money back to farmers than regular Fair Trade companies. For every dollar paid for coffee and tea, Level Ground Trading gives $0.69 directly back to the farmer compared to $0.48 that a regular Fair Trade company gives back.
100% certified organic coffee
Organic coffee is pure, pesticide and herbicide free and full of flavour. Growing coffee without pesticides and herbicides does not only mean healthier soil but also healthier farmers and a healthier you.
How to store your coffee
Once opened, store your Peru Medium Roast coffee in an airtight, opaque container and put it in a cooler spot in your house. Exposure to air, light, and heat will mean that your coffee loses its aroma more quickly. Do not freeze your coffee or store it in the fridge. The moisture in the fridge or freezer will make your coffee bland and tasteless in no time!
