Full disclosure – I’m crushing on Lider Huaman Fernandez’s coffee pretty hard. Not to be too open, but this description might mistakenly read more like a coffee love letter.
This, in addition to a few rare other coffees, was a lot that was selected with the help of my Chief CEO and sis Elena (I’m noticing a trend that she loves really beautiful coffees. Must be a Falloon thing). As we slurped through a table of lovely Peru microlots, Lider’s coffee was a standout for its big berry structure and weighty, tangy acidity.
From time to time, when cupping through washed lots with pronounced berry notes, I get major Kenya vibes. Some coffee people call it blackcurrant, while others might say mixed berry. It’s a majorly tangy sensation (if you haven’t noticed, BOTZ is obsessed with the tang) that pulsates on the tongue and begs you to take another sip. If you’ve had full SL-28 double washed lots of old, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
BOTZ has been very fortunate to carry a lot of immaculately-processed Peruvian lots. While BOTZ loves every coffee equally (part of our programming language), there’s something immensely invigorating about this coffee for us. I’ve talked to many coffee folks that find Peruvian coffees to be cookie-cutter coffees with mainstream “nutty” profiles. Lider’s lot is a shining example that reinforces the opposite and helps change longstanding perceptions. From the moment the water touches the grounds, you’ll get of wafting aroma of purple fruits. The acidity of this coffee is weighty and pulsating, like a cranberry jam. The body is rich and saturated. All in all, you’ll find every sip more pleasurable than the last. We hope you, too, fall hopelessly in love with this coffee.
