La Florida Peruvian coffees continue to evolve and are beginning to show signs of real character and depth. This year's organic coffee crop of La Florida shows a sophistication that is mature and makes for a great cup of coffee.

In 1965, a group of small-scale coffee farmers from the Chanchamayo region came together to establish the La Florida Cooperative. Since its founding, the organization has grown significantly and have been working together to improve the quality of coffee that La Florida produces. Their revenue from Fair Trade sales brings education and infrastructure to this rural area. The co-op has established The Occupational Learning Center for Sustainable Agriculture, which offers training in environmentally friendly farming techniques, as well as providing healthcare services in rural areas. For more than 13 years, La Florida has been committed to providing high quality, certified-organic coffee to buyers and strives for improvements in environmental protection, the quality of life of community members, and the quality of their product.

Cupping Notes: Sweet, chocolatey, and floral with a full, creamy body, and medium, citrus acidity.

I use this as a major component of an espresso blend using monsooned malabar, Peru, Ethiopian taye gedo and ethiopian yergecheffe. This is a great blend as it provides great taste outside of traditional espresso blends. Not a chocolatey base but not overly acidic either. Probably an acquired taste, but with the Peruvian beans in there it is always rewarding. Your mileage may vary.

Tried this from City all the way to 2nd crack (⁕bucks) burnt and can't make up my mind. Other than I don't like burnt, this offers wonderful flavors at any roast. I don't know coffee adjectives but this is in my top ten. The flavor changes and compliments each roast. I find most beans do not do this, they have one best roast and that's it, not sure why this has so many. Probably good for first time roasters as it is hard to go wrong.

Great roasting bean with prominent first and second crack. These beans are large so if using an SR500 (or similar) be aware. I roasted just into second crack for a good 5-7 seconds, bagged, waited, and was wowed by the flavor. Can't wait to run out so I can order MORE.

It has an ashy taste up front at full city roast, with lingering aftertaste that’s unpleasant.

The tobacco nose on this bean at City + roast is amazing. Smells like a fine cigar. As an avid homebrewer , the descriptions of IPA and Porter caught my attention and I'm experimenting...wish me luck.

This was my first try at roasting and I used my toaster oven on the front porch. It turned out great and the taste was awesome! I haven’t tried the other two yet.

The Peru La Florida is an amazing bean, and in my family of 14, it is an all around favorite in Polder house! So delicious, and kept in stock. Thank you for the wonderful coffee beans you offer!

Coffee is good, not that distinctive but good. The lower rating is because of the poor packaging for mailing. The plastic bag opened during shipment, spilling out about 1/4 of the contents into the padded paper mailing envelope. Only a couple of beans were lost this time, but a past order had the same thing happen and I estimate about ten percent were lost through an opening in the corner of the mailer.

This is a customer favorite. Due to customer requests we needed to find a bean that would lend itself well to roasting far into 2nd crack. This bean fits the bill. Roasted to a light french, it has a rich and spicy aroma and robust yet smooth flavor. Note that when roasted dark, the bean size is quite large. We haven't had any complaints, but I know that some prefer smaller beans.

I can attest that allowing the roast to rest for 24 to 48 hours produces a very good cup. One of the best SA or CA coffees I've had. I hope to vacuum freeze several pounds to preserve this seasonal crop, just in case next year's might decline. Recommend a medium roast (City + to Full City) and using pour over brings out all the nuances. Coffee Bean Corral supplies very good quality green coffees.
