La Piña
(temp. unavailable)

The Zamoras put what we can only call "special attention" into this excellent micro lot of organic yellow Caturra. This coffee makes a wonderfully sweet, smooth, and velvety cup, twinkling with hints of peach and raspberry among panela and sugar cane. Its name, "La Piña," was inspired by the pineapple ("piña" in Spanish) plants that grew randomly throughout the family's coffee. Sip and experience this Peruvian rarity while you can.
