About the coffee
The Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco - "El Palto" in short, was founded in 2003 by Jose Carranza Barboza and 35 other smallholder farmers. Today, all 188 members produce certified organic coffee. Across Peru, the coffee harvest is a family effort. Most smallholder producers use a household-based model of production. The families pitch together to contribute the work needed. From pruning to fertilising, to selectively hand-picking the coffee, the process involves the entire family for a successful coffee harvest. Our El Palto coffee has a classic chocolatey flavour profile with notes of rich caramel and hazelnut. It is our most versatile coffee and works great in everything from a traditional espresso machine to a bean to cup machine, and even filter! However, you brew it, El Palto is always alive with flavour!
