The history of Peru is reach enough as its cuisine. Recently it became trendy, fancy and started to expand around the world. The coffee is a part of it. Nespresso invites coffee lovers to embark on journey of the senses into the Peruvian Andes to discover a remarkable treasure. Perú Secreto, the newest Limited Edition Pure Origin Grand Cru, is Arabica blend sourced from remote coffee farms nestled along the spectacular Andean hillsides and valleys of Peru. And it’s twice great news, because in Peru they really have a problem making good coffee. At least now the beans would be used properly.
Perú Secreto, like the recent Monsoon Malabar from India, will be available for a short time only, due to limited supply. Nespresso coffee experts worked closely with 176 coffee farms in four different areas around the Peruvian Andes to acquire small amounts of exceptional green coffee to create this 100% Arabica blend.
Various factors combine to distinguish this region and the coffee it produces. The subtropical climate provides optimal cultivation conditions, with alternating wet and dry seasons. The high altitude of around 1,500 metres above sea level provides the right amount of sunlight for quality coffee to flourish. Finally, the local Peruvian farmers, working through the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Program, are dedicated in their care of the terroir that provides them with their livelihood. This unique alchemy is the secret behind Perú Secreto.
The Limited Edition Perú Secreto is already available for purchase at Nespresso boutiques worldwide, online and through Nespresso Customer Care Centres for a limited time from 18 May 2015.
