Espiritu De Wari, Peru EspressoDetour Coffee Roasters
The espresso roast of Espiritu de Wari really embraces the apple pastry-like quality to the cup profile. It focuses on the sweetness and the heavy texture of sweet and slightly spice-like aromatics that lead to balanced and layered notes of blackberry, caramel and apple.
Grown by a group of small scale farmers in the highlands along the Vilcabamba, in the Cusco region of Peru, this coffee is named after the ancient Wari civilization that once flourished on the lands. These sacred lands are said to be encompassed by ancient history, cultural artifacts and beautiful views with symbolic ruins which many believe to have held a place where the Wari Culture carried out sacred rituals. The coffee itself is an organic regional blend of caturra, bourbon and typica varietals, that is fully washed once picked and traditionally fermented for 16 hours before being dried on covered patios and raised beds with shade.
