La Danta is a blend of coffees produced along the highlands of San Ignacio, Cajamarca. The blend is named after the Andean Tapir, also known as mountain Danta, also known in Quechua as "sacha huagra". The Andean tapir, an endangered herbivore, is commonly found roaming the Andes mountain range, especially in northern Cajamarca.
La Danta represents for Caravela and the community a more conscious coffee producing culture that places nature and coexistence with it as an utmost priority. The producers who contribute to this brand recognize and believe that by always placing nature first, they add greater value to coffee and its surroundings. From the seed, to cherry, to parchment, to green coffee, this collective is possible thanks to the joint effort and commitment of more than 74 farmers who are key partners for our first Certified Organic coffee chain.
Peru has a lot of lands that spans from north to south as well as many microclimates due to the Andes Mountains. This makes for many distinct growing regions which each produce coffees with unique flavours. Cusco is a region known for coffees with a particularly light and structured flavour compared to coffees from Cajamarca to the north, which can have more heavy and dense flavours
This Peru makes a lovely & simple morning cuppa. Straight forward milk chocolate notes with hints of roasted almond with a smooth finish. Great coffee to start your day in the morning.
