La Palestina is the culmination of the Alarcon Coronel family's forty eight years producing coffee in Peru's Cajamarca region. This project shares the possibilities of Peruvian coffee and the sweet reward of years of hard work in its candy like citrus notes, juicy red fruit body, and subtle floral complexity. Second generation coffee farmers, the Alarcons have worked with Jose Rivera and Mariagracia Echeandia to share this coffee with Metric. The Alarcon's deep knowledge of the land combine with Jose and Mariagracia's commitment to education and improving coffee quality in Cajamarca. The result is an expressive, clean lot that not only shows the best of northern Peru, but how working together produces better coffee and elevates all parties involved. Flavor notes of the caturra and bourbon varietals are representational of farms in this region. The juicy body and clarity of presentation show just what skilled producers grew this coffee. La Palestina is the embodiment of 'Made by Humans'. Metric is honored to share this coffee that has our principles in each sip.In the cup we taste sweet lemon-lime soda and ripe red grapes with subtle elder flower undertones.
