Peru, El Gallito

£9.50
Named after the area's local bird, El Gallito de las Rocas, this microlot represents the most consistent quality coffee from the Cooperative.

Located in Northern Peru these farms are in a protected conservation area and work to an organic methodology and certification. The local wildlife is not only a figurehead for the co-op but also a source of pride in their successful protection and sustainability of the area.  

Now comprising over 330 small-scale coffee farmers the Cooperativa Agraria Frontera San Ignacio can be found near the border with Ecuador. Producers start the processing on site with pulping, washed fermentation and drying. Coffee is then delivered in parchment to the cooperatives warehouses in San Ignacio town where it is evaluated for physical appearance, tasted and separated according to quality and certification.

Shipping

Delivery on standard item is 2-3 days. Subscriptions and large items may require longer delivery times. We will contact you with a delivery estimate if your order can not be delivered within our standard timeframe.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.

Packaging

We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.

Delivery

We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
