"Andino is our all-Peruvian blend, made up of the season's best. It's an exciting country to source fresh coffee from because the harvest cycle is the opposite of most other coffee-producing countries! We roast the blend to best highlight Peruvian coffee's typically sweet, nutty and apple-like notes. Also, these lots are often certified fair trade and organic."
