The center of gravity in Peru’s coffee sector — and the focus of Intelligentsia’s Direct Trade sourcing program there — has historically been the mountainous north near the country’s border with Ecuador. It produces more coffee, and more specialty coffee, than any other region in Peru. In recent years, however, the rugged and remote Andean regions of Cusco and Puno in southern Peru have stolen the spotlight.  Thrilling coffees like this one, and farmers like Lucio Luque Vásquez who grew it, are the reasons why.
