Peru Organic Chasqui 18/19 Crop
- UPS Flat
- 65lb Freshness
- Packed & Sealed
The chasquis were the messengers of the Inca empire — the fittest and most highly trained individuals; the best of the best. They would not only run messages across great distances and topographies, but could also read and translate and helped to keep order.
Our Organic Chasqui coffee is a collection of lots from around Peru that, like its namesake, are the best of the best. Coffee cherries were harvested during the June - October harvest. The cherries were machine cleaned and processed. After the coffee was dried it was sorted by color and density to ensure that only the best beans remained.
Geography The Center Regions used to be the largest, in terms of coffee volume, but that dropped dramatically after the leaf rust crisis in 2013. Since the crisis, San Martín and Cajamarca have been expanding again, in both productivity and new planted areas.
Region Centro: Cajamarca, Junin and San Martin

First time buying and everything was PERFECT!
by Albert F
Bought my first 65lb box and everything was perfect! I typically purchase bags from other importers, so I was a bit concerned about purchasing online. However, the process was incredibly easy. I read the info on the coffee, placed it in my cart, and the box showed up $10 later! The coffee is awesome: fresh, sorted well, organic, strong value. I could not be more satisfied. I am definitely purchasing more.
Strong organic option
This coffee has a rich bittersweet chocolate flavors that I don't usually find in organics. I also noticed fruity accents at the finish. Definitely more flavorful with deeper roast development.

This coffee was highly recommended to me by another roaster and it does not disappoint. I don't do all organic, but I like to have an organic option. I love that I can stock an organic option that comes in a 65lbs. I'm planning on making Chasqui Organico part of my program moving forward.
Absolutely love this coffee, quickly became a customer and personal favorite. Roasted it to City +, which creates a very smooth cup, with a sweet aroma. Several customers placed reorders the same day after getting home and trying it. No question, I will be keeping this one in stock for a while.
