    Cafe Altura Fair Trade Peruvian is in the medium range, with just a hint of oil on the surface. This coffee has a mild sweet aftertaste. Rich in flavor and aroma, this coffee drinks well at anytime of the day. The Fair Trade movement advocates the payment of a higher price to farmers as well as higher social and environmental standards.

    For those whose palettes favor a darker roast, try our Fair Trade Peruvian Dark Roast.

    Love this coffee

    Delicious, delicious, delicious coffee. As a mother with a preschooler and newborn, this coffee is sustaining me and I enjoy every sip (even the cold ones). It's great in a standard coffee maker...magical with a french press. Lovely flavor and very smooth.

    Good Coffee

    This is very tasty coffee if you make it a bit stronger than you would with a darker roast.
