Our Peruvian hard bean coffee comes from the Chanchamayo province, located in central Peru. It grows at an altitude between 1200 – 1350 meters above sea level. Its varieties include Caturra, Typica, Pache, and Bourbon. The farms belong to small producers with less than two hectares of land that generate around 3,000 lbs. of coffee per harvest. This coffee is shade grown at high altitudes in order to produce a denser bean and a more complex cup characteristic as a result of its slow maturation process. In addition, the producers have made a remarkable effort to produce a high quality bean by only using sustainable farming practices.
- HB (Hard Bean) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1200 meters. The beans are hard, dense, and possess the potential for a good coffee cup; this classification is lower than SHB; also synonymous with HG.
