Iconic - Elmer Masache, Peru


When rarity meets true impact its something to be celebrated, and this iconic is an example of just that!


The coffee

This coffee is a nano-lot - with less than 140kg produced, contributing to its rarity. In addition, it has undergone the natural process, which is less common in this region. We often see washed coffees, and honey, but to find a natural is a bit of a gem. 

This coffee is beautifully sweet and complex, and reminds us of blackberry old fashioned, with a hint of tropical and a twist of orange.  Excitingly, this coffee also supports the preservation of Paddington’s cousins in Peru. Cheers to that!
