A sweet, gentle coffee that works really well as a light roast. I think too much flavor gets roasted away in the darker roasts.

Story

Open tab

We took a chance on Pangoa, a small coop on the Amazonian slopes of Central Peru back in 2003, being their first Fair Trade and Direct buyer. Since then, we have introduced this coffee to the specialty marketplace, and the sweet, soft beans prepared so well by indigenous Ashaninkas farmers have been in great demand in America and in Europe. We continue to enjoy the best of their crop in return for our long-term commitment.

Pangoa and Dean’s Beans have collaborated on the creation of many meaningful and successful initiatives together over the years. The coop has used our premiums, profit shares and development monies to create women’s loan funds, a great reforestation program, a honey project for income diversification, college education funds and more!

Peru is the forgotten child of the specialty coffee world. It is a huge country, so much so that the growing seasons differ by a month or so even within the same country. Peruvian coffees are notable for their mildness and sweetness, even though they are grown at really high altitudes on the Amazonian slopes of the Andes. They are better in a light roast than a dark roast, as the flavor and mild acidity roast away quickly. But a soft, sweet Peru is a subtle charm and can really be appreciated if you take your time with it. One of the most easily drinkable coffees black. Wonderful coffees come from Chanchamayo, Pangoa, and Lamas.
