La Arada - Espresso - 250g
Berry. Chocolate. Vibrant.
- From The Barn Berlin -
Peru´s highlands offer great growing conditions for quality coffee. However, after the split of large estates into small farms over the past century, many coffee producers lack infrastructure or access to the Specialty Coffee Market. Aromas del Valle is changing exactly that: They offer technical support and create sustainability by introducing higher standards. Our coffee comes from smallholder families across the provinces of Jaén, San Ignacio and Cutervo in Northern Peru.
What fascinated us was the expressive character of this cup with notes of mandarin, honeysuckle and raisin, with tons of caramel sweetness. This coffee has a smooth mouthfeel and is backed up by a gentle citric acidity.

Mario Flores is following in the footsteps of his father, whose Los Chorros farm changed our perceptions of Honduran coffee.
At La Arada, Mario is showing a dedication to quality all of his own, working alongside his wife to produce this perfectly balanced coffee that shows off the distinct terroir of Intibuca.
