Monte Grande – Peruvian Coffee


Peruvian Single Origin Coffee

Monte Grande is the name of an archaeological site located in the province of Jaen in the department of Cajamarca. A ceremonial temple there, with rocks arranged in a spiral shape, dates back more than 5,000 years.

Research that began in 2009 discovered that this site was part of a culture that developed on the border between Peru and Ecuador and extended into both countries. The researchers in both Ecuador and Peru want to build a binational touristic archaeological park that shows the uniqueness of this culture that existed more than 5,000 years ago.

Today, there is a group of farmers that grow coffee in the highlands that surround Monte Grande. They are committed to preserving their culture and history as well as protecting their environment and lands.

Choose wholebean or ground coffee for your preferred brewer.
