Our only dark roast here at Canoe. We realize that not everyone likes their coffee to have bright fruity notes; some just like a dark rich cup of joe. We think this coffee fits that mold pretty well. No canoes were burned in the making of this coffee.
The farmers that produce coffee exported by Perunor, follow a strict quality control systems, from initial planting to harvesting and environmental conservation. The farmers participate in regular training sessions to continue to improve the systems already in place that are funded by coffee sales and by organizations such as the World Bank. The shade-grown coffee produced by Perunor grows in soil rich in organic matter and naturally occurring minerals. The cherry shells are used to create an organic compost used to enhance the acidity of the soil. The coffee trees are shaded by native tree’s with heights ranging from 12-30m, which follows their environmental conservation philosophy. The farmers partake in small committees that comprise the Selva Andina Association. Through these groups, the farmers participate in community efforts to further enhance their environments. The coffee produced by the Perunor farmers meets international standards for excellence and is consistently a high standard organic or gourmet quality.
