June Coffee of the Month - Peru Efrain Carhuallocllo

It's time for June's Coffee Club! Every month we like to highlight new and unique coffees, carefully curated by our roastery team to give you varying flavour profiles and new taste experiences.

"We’re super excited to be able to showcase this coffee from the distinguished Efrain Carhuallocllo Salvador. Once harvested, Efrain's coffee is allowed to rest for 24 hours under shade in plastic bags. Following this, the beans are washed and before being transferred to African beds that are maintained under controlled temperature and humidity conditions. 

With notes of peach and waffle bursting through, it is a coffee full of flavour and acidity, and we’re really proud to release this coffee at Small Batch Coffee Roasters." - Dan, Senior Roaster
