Suitable for: All brew methods but especially through a V60, Chemex or Cold Brew
If you care about quality coffee, you’ve come to the right place. We at Perky are constantly on the hunt for the world’s most delicious coffee, finding the best beans for your brew by sustainably sourcing a superb seasonal selection. Try saying that after an espresso martini.
For our single origin coffee, we’ll source the beans then carefully roast them to get the most from their host. What you end up with is a more developed flavour profile, for those who prefer a little more body and sweetness to their coffee.
Most methods will yield great results with this blend, but put it through the espresso or stovetop process for a brew that’ll really blow your mind.

Caicedo is a municipality southwest of Antioquia. It is located close to the Pacific rainforest in the middle of the steepest mountains of the region.
Caicedo´s geographical conditions are suited to growing specialty coffee and it is also a challenging area to reach needing to travel 80km on unpaved roads to the region.
For many years the farmers were dislodged by guerrillas and could not work their lands. Only Some years ago it has been resolved the farmers came back to their homes and started growing coffee, which became their primary source of income. Thanks to the help and education from the government, the coffee growers can be producing specialty coffee in safety again.
In this region the main crop is from November to January when this coffee was harvested and is made up of the varietals castillo and colombia. The coffee is picked and then pulped before being fermented in water for 36 hours. The coffee is then dried in parabolic driers for between 10 - 14 days weather depending.
