Peru HB MCM comes to us from central Peru, specifically the Chanchamayo region. The coffee is produced by local smallholder farmers who deliver their harvested cherry to central mills for further processing and sale. Part of this process includes the use of machines to sort out any defects and perform a “cleaning” process; this Machine Cleaned Mejorado process provides a more consistent final product. The HB distinction is for Hard Bean coffees; those grown at altitudes of over 1,200 meters above sea level. Hard Bean coffees are also synonymous with HG, or High Grown lots.

Details & Notes:

  • Flavors: Walnut, Cocoa.
  • Variety: Bourbon, Catimor, Pache
  • Process: Washed
  • Drying: Drying Beds
  • Altitude: 1250 masl (4101 ft)

Roasting Notes:

Roasted to a medium to dark (for us) level and done so with an emphasis on consistency throughout the roast. To achieve this, we kept our charge temperature slightly higher due to the high elevation of the coffee and kept an eye on the progression of the roast. We quickly decreased the energy in the drum to dry the coffee patiently which would create the opportunity to really increase the body later in the roast. We found that the slightly longer roast made some really nice walnut and Cocoa notes.
