Every year we buy from producers in the Sandia Valley who are members of the Coopertiva Tupac Amaru. The lots submitted are often miniscule (2-3 bags) and so a larger quantity is built from the pooled, selected lots. Our four favourite coffees were all from female producers so we decidedrather than name their lot after Tupac Amaru II, the famous freedom fighter who resisted Spanish Colonial rule, we'd name it for Micaela Bastidas, unrecognized co-leader of the resistance. This coffee is special. It's such a clear representative cup from the southern gem, Puno. And it is our first South Peruvian coffee of the season.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be suspending the order pickup option and offering free local delivery to our Victoria-based customers in its place. Due to the volume of online orders, we are limiting deliveries to within a 10km radius of our Rock Bay roastery. If you'd like to receive delivery please select "Local Delivery" during the checkout process. Further, we've extended our Canada-wide free shipping offer to any order above $45, and we will continue to offer a flat-rate shipping of only $10 for all other orders. Thank you so much for your support.
