El Oso or ‘The Bear’ is grown at the top of the Cajamarca Region in northern Peru.
Here the Western and Eastern mountain ranges of the Andes meet to form microclimates in the buttresses and valleys that descend from the mountains to the Amazon basin. The farms are located in the buffer zones of a protected natural area, and have seen spectacled bears, cock-of-the-rocks, jaguars and peccaries within their boundaries. This means working with an organic methodology and certification is a strategic point because through these standards, a culture of protection of wildlife and species in danger of extinction is encouraged and created.
This washed coffee is super clean with nutmeg, raisin and a long finish.
