PERU • SANTOS MARCOS CCANA
Cusco coffees are extraordinary and few illustrate their potential as clearly as Santos Marcos Ccana’s. The cup opens with a delightful array of fruit jam notes: raspberry, apricot, and blackberry. It is creamy and thick, like whipped cream, but also brimming with lighter sugary notes - think shortbread and pound cake. Its finish moves from milk chocolate to sweet coconut flakes and toasted almond.
With over 20 years growing coffee, Santos Marcos Ccana and his Bellocpampa farm illustrates the meeting point of expertise and passion. Nestled in the Yanatile Valley, his 16-year-old Typica trees grow alongside a variety of fruit trees and produce around 40 quintals of parchment. It is processed through Prudencio Vargas Saenz and the Valle Inca cooperative.
