Nougat Mint Chip – Facundo Pintado Ysabel, Cajamarca, Peru
This lot is Caturra variety grown by Facundo Pintado Ysabel, who is part of the Alto San Ignacio cooperative in San José de Lourdes in Cajamarca, in the north of Peru. Incredibly remote, Facundo’s coffee makes it to the capital of Cajamarca via a wooden pulley system to cross the nearby river before being transported for dry milling. Washed processed, this coffee reminds us of sweet nougat, and a refreshing herbal thing with a cacao nib finish.
