A comforting cup of coffee. See further product details below.
This one is up there in my favourite coffees and this latest crop is hands down my favourite coffee this year because of its comforting chocolatey and butterscotch flavours, in fact when I was spokesperson for the BBC on national coffee day a few years ago, it was an equally good crop and when interviewed, this was my favourite that year too . It’s a perfect drink for a lazy cold morning. I love it with full fat steamed milk as an alternative to a hot chocolate.
Sustainably shade grown, the coffee plants here are treated with care, and fed and washed in pure spring water. It takes its name from Tunki, a locally-found wild bird.
I just want to take a moment to mention our suppliers. Leon and Peter discovered this coffee quite a few years ago. Since I first tried it, I haven’t brought Peruvian coffee anywhere else. The guys are great, they look after their farmers and I know that the product will always be exceptional.
The name Tunki comes from the locally found wild bird (also known as ‘cock of the rocks’) and is traditionally farmed by hand and produced without the use of nasty pesticides or chemicals. Situated high in the mountains amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, the coffee beans are firstly fed and washed by pure spring waters and then harvested by the local indigenous Quechua and 'Aymara' speaking families. These proud families have worked the area for generations in harmony with the land. At the beginning of each season all farmers make an annual ceremony to the earth 'Pachamama' to ask for blessings for the coming season.
