El Sauce from Peru is quickly becoming a team favourite. Located in San Pedro de Churuyacu, Tabaconas, right up in the northern corner of Cajamarca, El Sauce means willow trees. With the help of his sons after 40 years of producing lower-grade commercial coffee, Teo lio Bermeo turned his gaze to speciality coffee beans. Famed throughout Cajamarca for producing the best aguardiente, a traditional and regional alcoholic drink derived from sugarcane, it came as no surprise when their speciality coffee soon stood out as some of the best the area has to offer. Growing Bourbon, Caturra, Icatu and Pache the microclimate at such a high altitude harvests a vibrant cup full of character. Showing notes of fresh berries, hints of tropical acids and a chewy marmalade texture all wrapped up in a sugarcane sweetness, we can’t get enough! To bring out El Sauce’s full avour and pleasant acidity use your V60 brewer, then nd a comfortable spot far from the noise to savour this straight-up tasty cup.
