SWEET & REFINED
The latest from Kaito's Yellow Collection, Ronal Montenegro is a lovely showcase of what Peruvian coffee can be. Sweet and buttery, with a delicate hint of stone fruit; expect smooth butterscotch and a long, milk chocolate finish.
Developed just enough to accentuate its natural sweetness and complex flavours, this light-medium roast single origin Peruvian coffee is best enjoyed black, and lends itself beautifully to filter or immersion methods.
In order to provide you the freshest coffee possible, all orders received up to and including Sunday will be roasted Monday and shipped Wednesday.

FROM THE ROASTER
JUMARP cooperative, which stands for Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco “El Palto,” was founded in the Amazonian Andes of Northern Peru by José Carranza Barboza and 35 smallholder founders in 2003. Together, they created the association out of a desire to develop a new model of growing and exporting coffee, including an ambitious program for quality improvement among its members. Because coffee production in that region started in the 50’s, farming practices relied heavily on the use of agro-chemicals. After many decades, this group decided to change the old ways and start sustainable coffee production in harmony with the native forest. They also realized that united they would stand stronger in the commercialization of their coffee.
JUMARP has 350 members as well as 12 people who manage the cooperative, including Guersy de la Cruz. Services they offer members include personalized technical assistance and social support such as credits for health care and funeral services. They also provide their coffee marketing services for the national and international markets under strict quality standards and are FTO certified. To guarantee democratic decision making, JUMARP focuses on channeling market knowledge to producers so that they can make informed and participatory decisions.
