Our Solitude Espresso comprises coffee from a ‘single origin’. This might be defined as a single farm, or a mill being served by many thousands of farms. The term ‘single origin’ in coffee is often difficult to pin down.

The coffee in this current espresso comes from not one, but three farms, located around the town of Barro Negro in Peru. Through extensive cupping, Maria’s farm Limon II, Evaristo’s farm El Guayaquil, and Wilmer’s farm El Pedregal, have each been singled out as some of the top lots from the region this year.

You can expect fruit notes along the lines of black cherry with an aniseed undertone and a lingering chocolate finish.

Social and Environmental Responsibility

All three producers are considered founders of the local association, having been members since its inception in 2019. Since its beginnings, producers have benefited greatly, as not only can members receive a higher price for his quality products, but also can attend training sessions on topics such as how to make their plots more productive. This drive to develop better coffee is one promoted by the association, believing that producing great quality, leads to producer empowerment and wider benefits for all coffee families.
