PERU PERHUSA HB MCM Grade 1 – Medium Roast Coffee
Although coffee production started in the 1700s, for a long time, the coffees produced by Peru are consumed only in the domestic markets. In the late 1800s, with the spread of leaf mold on arabica trees in Indonesia, coffee plants were damaged and coffee production decreased. With the demand of the European market not being met, a search was started among other producing countries and Peruvian coffee was discovered! Today, it is one of the leading arabica coffee exporting countries in the world. Coffee producers in Peru usually own small farms and are members of a cooperative.
Our coffee beans from the “Selva Central” region from central Peru have HB classification as they grow at altitudes higher than 1200 meters. In addition, it has the “MCM” or “Machine Cleaned Mejorado” classification, thanks to its separation from defective seeds with extra care before export. Peru’s quality grading system uses this unique term MCM to indicate that defective kernels are separated from machines and quality is improved.
We recommend those who describe their coffee taste as “soft drink” to try Peruvian filter coffee as soon as possible. It will take its place among your favorites.
