Transcend has been working with Origin Coffee in Peru for three years now. We are excited to delve further into this amazing country, as we discover more and more amazing coffee. Origin established this Comité four years ago, two years after the onset of our working relationship with Israel Contreras. In those days, Israel would bring cuyes (guinea pigs) to the Origin office every two weeks. And just as he once provided them with this great food, he is now bringing great coffee to a wider audience!
His Pache mutation, with its lovely floral profile, garners praise whenever it graces a cupping table. On a broader level, Origin has helped establish best practices in the area, helping local farmers deliver a markedly improved product. The farmers here have become so proficient that they are now planting exotic varieties, including Geisha.
Israel Contreras and another local producer, Onias Guerrero, are exceptional producers and among the most humble, good-natured people with whom Origin have worked with. Their ready adaptation to quality-driven practices-- including shade growth and innovative washing techniques-- illustrates this comité’s room for growth, even for members without a coffee growing background. Further improvements in infrastructure promise to elevate this region’s coffee to among Peru’s most renowned.

We want to draw your attention to a subtle change on our labels, all of our labels now include both filter and espresso symbols. The reason for this is simple: all of our coffees have been prepared so that they are well suited to any brewing method. Different brewing methods will highlight different aspects of our coffees, making each brew unique. We will continue to classify any coffees we deem especially suited for brewing espresso.
