This coffee is a delicious option for any palate, with notes of nougat, mango, and chocolate pudding - it’s a true crowd-pleaser.
The Noble team started working with this co-op after having identified this region as particularly special through the Cup of Excellence program. This Cusco area produces delicious coffees that are really special, time and time again. This comes, in part, because of the high elevation provided by the Andes mountains as well as fact that the producers have selected the best varieties (typica, bourbon, caturra, and gesha). Moreover, Maranura co-op in particular helps producers with technicians that provide training on environmental preservation, crop diversification, reforestation plans, and wildlife conservation. To top if off, the town of Maranura just so happens to be known as the mango capitol of Peru, which this coffee coincidentally showcases in its flavor. You simply can’t go wrong with this beauty.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
