PERU Tunki Cloud Forests Coffee
A great and balanced 100% organic Arabica coffee, from a single origin. Gourmet coffee from the Peruvian Andes. This exclusive organic coffee encompasses intensity of flavour, medium body and citrus like acidity.
Tunki coffee is Organic Certified and has won a number of awards. The most prestigious was “Best Specialty Coffee in the World” selected by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
The name Tunki comes from the locally found wild bird.
Tunki coffee is traditionally farmed by hand and produced without the use of nasty pesticides or chemicals. Situated high in the mountains amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, the coffee beans are firstly fed and washed by pure spring waters and then harvested by the local indigenous Quechua and ‘Aymara’ speaking families. These proud families have worked the area for generations in harmony with the land. At the beginning of each season all farmers make an annual ceremony to the earth ‘Pachamama’ to ask for blessings for the coming season.
Small holder farming tribe communities take care of forest biodiversity protecting them from deforestation through treating coffee plants and the forest with a huge respect. Coffee is grown naturally under the shade of the mountain cloudy forest.
Coffee beans are selectively handpicked when ripest then taken in large handwoven baskets to the washing station at the top of the mountain where most of the beans are de-pulped, soaked and then dried on patios.
