Tucked away in the mountainous landscape of Peru, in the department of Chirinos, sits the coffee producing cooperative La Prosperidad. Almost 50 years old and with more than 700 members, La Prosperidad is a terrific example of a self-sufficient cooperative. Its producers strive for improvement and provide for themselves in many ways, from raising trout, livestock, and guinea pigs to maintaining the Pachakushi, an organic fertilizer created at the cooperative.
This coffee is an example of South American coffee production at its best. Notes of honeydew, cranberry, and molasses accompany the bouquet of floral aromatics, juicy body, and balanced acidity.
