This lot from farmer Leonidas Peña is our first arrival from the fresh harvest in Peru. Leonidas is a member of a newly formed producer group in Cajamarca called Rio Blanco, named for the river in which all their farms are found along. Rio Blanco's organizers are focused on helping the producers get the best possible prices for their coffees. Some projects they've undertaken since organizing are developing organic fertilizers using local materials, as well educating producers on land management practices. 

Located in a National Sanctuary, the coffee grown on Leonidas' farm is a testament to the terroir. In the cup, we're tasting vibrant notes of dried cranberry, blackcurrant, and sugary toffee. This is one of the most exciting coffees we've had come through our door in a long time, and we couldn't be more excited to kick off a new season of coffee from Peru with this lot.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?

Yes!

First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
