Flavour Profile
Tropic Coffee’s Grade 1 Peruvian Chanchamayo is a light bodied roast, with medium acidity and delicate floral notes.

Small Producers, Big Quality

Produced by small farmers with less than two hectares of land, each harvest yields around 3,000 lbs. of coffee. These farmers focus on sustainable practices, ensuring high-quality beans and a responsible approach to cultivation.

Natural Process, Distinctive Flavour

Harvested between June and August/September, the beans undergo a careful washing process. Left to sun-dry at these high altitudes, the beans absorb unique flavours from the Andean climate. This results in a cupping score of 80 and above.
