Jorge Chavez, Perú
This coffee offers a well-rounded, rich, and flavorful experience with layers of intricate flavors.
Jorge Chavez is not a person, but a very small town of around 30 families in northern Perú. Each year they harvest around 250 bags of great, consistent, and sweet coffee beans. Don Ciro Castro is the coffee leader of the community. Don Ciro and his family lived high in the Andes Mountains where they raised cattle and produced Aguardiente, a Peruvian spirit made from sugarcane. By the 1990s, Don Ciro could no longer compete with the corporate Aguardiente manufacturers so he, his wife and his oldest son, Henry, moved to the village of Jorge Chavez. They built a livestock farm and reinvested the profits into cultivating coffee. In the last few years, Don Ciro and Henry led the community initiative to transition to specialty-grade coffee production. Don Ciro now consolidates and checks on the town’s coffee lots, loads them into a truck, and brings them to be processed. This coffee is special because it's the effort of multiple families in a community and it represents some of the best coffee Peru has to offer. Peru has a burgeoning coffee industry that may soon match the dynamics of Colombia and we're excited to explore this region and all it has to offer—coffee and stories alike.

By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.
Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.
If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
