Captain's Gold top 6! This community lot from the partner producers of Machu Picchu is a real crowd pleaser! It'll take on a variety of roasts well, it's excellent as a single origin or a blender and it's over all a very beginner friendly coffee to roast. Rich, creamy and balanced, in our cups we noted the sweetness of caramel and ripe red apple along with raisin and graham cracker.

Located in the Junin department where the Peruvian valleys give way to the heights of the Andes Mountains, this cooperative is named for the ancient ruins found in those impossible heights. Thanks to the moisture from the Pacific and the volcanic soil of the Ring of Fire, these slopes are prime arabica real estate! The partner producers of Machu Picchu have put together a wonderful community lot showcasing their local terroir.

Gentle acidity and a touch of sweetness, give way to a very balanced, clean cup with excellent body and a creamy texture. Our cups featured caramel sweetness along with ripe, red apple, raisin, and graham cracker. This coffee makes an excellent daily driver and will work very well if you prefer cream and sugar in your morning cup. It works best at full medium and right up to the beginning of 2nd crack but will take on a variety of roast levels with ease. It’s a perfect coffee for beginners because even if you don’t nail your roast, this coffee will still shine. In other words, a very forgiving coffee that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing

Recommended Roast Range: City + to Full City + (Light-medium to medium-dark)

Start at City + (light-medium) or just about 1 minute into rolling first crack. From there, go a bit darker if desired, but find it best not to go any darker than Full City + (Medium-dark or right at the first few snaps of second crack). Most folks will prefer a Full City or after first crack has ended and before second crack begins. Lighter roasts will a bit more brightness with more of a silky texture. Medium-dark roasts will accentuate more body taking on an almost velvety texture as well as emphasizing caramel tones and graham cracker at the expense of acidity.
