Grandmother Augusta is always the first to invite you inside, give you a homemade meal, and take care of you when you are feeling under the weather. This coffee embodies her ability to nurture and warm the soul.

Chirinos is a long-standing cooperative and leader in Cajamarca known for their agricultural ingenuity and reliability. The group has weathered change and uncertainty throughout the decades which is a testament to both the quality of their coffee and their ability to adapt and innovate. Coffee is hand-picked by co-op members and their families. Each producer group relies on an experienced agronomist for technical support in organic production and quality control. They use strictly organic compost which they make themselves using a unique composting system called "gaicashi."

I do pour over using a Virtuoso grinder and Chemex equipment. The coffee is so good that milk and sugar are not even needed.
I order the beans online and here in Portland they arrive very quickly.
Besides the great coffee I am impressed with the many community projects that Nossa Familia engages in.
Enjoy everything about this blend. Great to enjoy everyday.
