Last Peruvian coffee is the year is probably the most special one. This farm used to work for years exclusively with Stumptown Coffee Roasters, so we were lucky purchasing this small lot that suits both filter and espresso roasting.
Timbuyacu is Alfonso and Karim’s private coffee farm, just outside of Mendoza. Timbuyacu is a Quechua word, yaku meaning water and timbu roughly translating to source. The farm is named this in reference to the groundwater spring present on the land, which belonged to Alfonso’s grandmother. Alfonso and Karim began cultivating coffee here in 2010 in order to better understand the realities of the producers they were buying from.
