Peru is one of the world powerhouses when it comes to the production of Fair-trade and Organic beans. This example of Peruvian is extraordinary. Also extraordinary is the price. At $3.50/100g or $14/lb (reg $18). The darker roasted beans are great as an espresso and equally as good as a drip or french-press brew. Just don't cold-brew it, the result won't likely please you. Get it ground to suit your brewing style (coarse, medium, or espresso). Or for the freshest brew, whole bean so you can grind it yourself. As with all coffee, store it in an airtight container as soon as possible and use within 2 weeks for optimal flavor.


Every Hamper, Jude reaches deep into her stash of rare and unusual green coffee beans to bring delicious oddities like wild-harvested coffee, unusual processes, and a little bit of information about origin or geo-politics; together which become the Special Reserve. Special Reserve coffees are an opportunity to try some of Jude's favorites too - coffees too good to miss. Special Reserve coffees may only ever appear ONCE depending on the availability of beans; in some cases, Jude has been able to source as little as 2lbs of any particular coffee. 


For the more common, but still special coffees, Jude is able to take Custom Roasting orders. Order by Saturday before the Hamper and Jude can include it with your Hamper order. The Special Reserve listing will always say if a coffee is available for Custom Roasting and its per lb price. Email Jude at for more information.
