More info about this coffee:
This lot produced by Jorge Perez and family, cupped so well at the co-op they decided to let it stand on its own as a micro-lot. Marked by its initial richness and tropical fruit notes and superior clarity all the way through to its finish, we agreed and had to have it. Additional renumeration was provided to the Perez family and the coop for their efforts.
