Gallito de las Rocas is our newest "green label" offering. Single Origin coffees with a forest green label are chosen to reflect the characteristics and flavor profile of The Classic. The Classic was our most popular coffee in 2021 - always approachable, always sweet. It's coffee that tastes like great coffee. If you've enjoyed The Classic but want to try something new you won't go wrong with our green label coffees.
We were very impressed with this coffee from Peru. The vibrancy and sweetness outshone even some of our favorite but similar coffees from Colombia. We were able to purchase Gallito de las Rocas through our importing partner Atlantic Specialty Coffee and the in-country exporting group Origin Coffee Lab.
This particular lot of coffee represents the work of a 279 member cooperative group located in the Namballe - San Ignacio community, located between the Blanco and Tabaconas rivers. The processing method chosen for this coffee is a low-impact bag-held method, where whole coffee cherries are sealed in grainpro bags for 24-48 hours to improve brightness and acidity in the cup. The coffee is then fully washed to remove all skin and fruit pulp.
The result is a cup profile that balances sweet acidity and rich sweetness. Gallito de las Rocas is sure to be an approachable crowd-pleaser while still impressing the most experienced coffee professionals.
