Peru, Clever Acosta

TASTES LIKE Toffee Apple, Marshmallow, Sultana
PROFILE Syrupy & Sweet


We first bought Clever’s coffee in 2018. A studious and methodical farmer, Clever has gone from strength to strength, utilising his own modest cupping lab that he shares with his family. As Clever is an experienced cupper, he uses the lab located at the farm to teach his family how to detect quality and also defects or taints in the green coffee. This way they can learn how to minimise or completely avoid certain production errors, thus raising the score and perceived quality of the lot and then hopefully, higher prices paid back. This is one of things that was so impressive about Clever when we were able to visit and cup with him at his lab - attention to detail and a strong desire to continuously reinvest back into his farm. He has an impressive multi level drying facility for his parchment and he is also experimenting with growing unique varieties, that most others wouldn’t. We have also purchased a natural process lot of Clever’s through the Atipanaku Regional Auction this year - the first of it’s kind!
