About this coffee

Coffee story

At the heart of this blend are “cafeteros” or coffee growers that have been part of the Peet’s family for decades. These farmers are members of Central American co-ops in that are committed to quality.

Llano Bonito, the pretty plain, is a deceptive name for a cooperative located in the lofty canton of León Cortes, the heart (and height) of Costa Rica’s famed region of Tarrazú. The altitude—up to 1700 meters—and the coffee traditions of these 600 farm families produce a bright, sweet and citric cup that we have been sourcing for Peet’s for three decades.

Further north, Las Hermanas, a sisterhood of some 200 women growers in the highlands of Jinotega, contributes a beautiful Nicaragua coffee. These farmers are part of SOPPEXCCA, a co-op which has been a leader in promoting gender equality and empowering women. We’ve been working with Las Hermanas farmers since 2001 and we continue to be inspired by them. Equally inspiring is the coffee they produce; it offers a creamy body, milk chocolate sweetness, and a lingering finish.

Together, these two Fair Trade certified coffees offer a bright-yet-balanced blend with a lemony tang and smooth finish—a toast to the dedicated farmers who grow it.

Terrific palate coffee, stands up to cream, milk, soy milk and dry spice (cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla sugar, etc.) especially well for an American coffee. Comes with an unusual caveat, a nuance in the aroma that suggest wisps from a lit cigarette nearby, simply unmistakable. My wife and I don't smoke but she remarked on the odd smoky tobacco mustiness too.
