Taste


This is a delightfully smooth, full-bodied and complex coffee, with a delicious floral aroma, citrusy orange snap and delicate chocolate flavours. It is superb both black or with milk.


Facts


Shade-grown in the Peruvian Andes at an altitude of 1600-1800 metres amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, this coffee is traditionally farmed and produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The coffee beans are first fed and washed by pure spring waters and then harvested by hand by local indigenous Quechuan and Aymara speaking families who have worked the area for generations in harmony with the land. The farmers enjoy the benefits of working as a cooperative which provides much-needed annual funds and training on how to organically enhance farming conditions as well as providing a stable market for their coffee and a guarantee that a fair price will always be achieved.


This coffee has won several awards: in 2013 it came second out of 51 entries in the Rainforest Alliance's Cupping for Quality, held at the Speciality Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Lab in Long Beach California. In 2012 it was one of the best coffees of the year in the Roasters Guild Competition. It won first place in the National CafA expo awards in Lima and was the coffee used by the third place winner in the UK barista final.

Flavour Profiles Bitter, Chocolate, Sweet
Roast Profile Care is need when roasting this bean, if it is roasted to a medium level it is delightful as an espresso or americano but can wash out with milk based drinks, so we take it just to medium/dark. This maintains the flavours and works well in milk. Roasting wise it is is taken through a good first crack (no less than 2 mins) and beyond by a few minutes but pulled before any evidence of second crack.
Cupping Notes 1. Acidity - medium citrus/orange based hits you after the sweetness 2. Sweetness - good sweetness. 3. Body - A near full body roasted to this level. 4. Balance - great balance of flavours, moves nicely from sweet, to mild acidity to milk chocolate, no flavours are overpowering. 5. Character - Smooth and complex, absolutely delicious. If brewing as an espresso play with your grind and extraction and see the taste profile change order! This coffee works well with milk where some creamy milk chocolate appears.
Origin Notes Situated in the high Andes and fed by spring waters, grown at high altitude amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley region Tunki Coffee is named after the locally found wild bird (also known as ‘cock of the rocks’) It is harvested by hand by local families who have worked the area for generations.

An awesome coffee from "Darkest Peru" - just needs Paddington and a Marmalade Sandwich
By
This coffee is simply awesome, and is fighting with Monsoon Malabar as my favourite.
Full bodied with excellent palate and no bitterness - really good taste. A good coffe for drinking all day as well as after dinner
Like having a chocolate orange!

I love this coffee, so vibrant and flavoursome. You really do get the feeling you are drinking a chocolate orange! Smells fantastic, and I have now made this my regular daily coffee.
