coffee was very good.
Love this coffee!! The beans have usually been roasted a day or two before being shipped to me. They smell wonderful!! The coffee tastes amazing. Have been ordering the Peru Medium for about 6 months.
I ordered 5 pounds of Peru coffee and the quality was excellent; however, the delivery was extremely slow. I ordered on May 1 and received a message on May 2 that my order was shipped. It took 12 days to receive it!! You don't want your fresh coffee to sit in the storage of some carriers for more than 10 days
I used to drink Brooklyn Roasting Company Peru Flavor, but somewhat overpriced... Wild Coffee Peru gave me fairly similar tastes at half the price. Now I became Wild coffee guru...
Been drinking this for a while now. Best coffee I've tried. And I've tried a lot of coffee. This one is a winner
Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild beans we could find out of dozens of coffees we tested. These Premium Grade beans are from small-farms, and are single-origin sourced in small batches.
Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted in these small batches. The fresh roasted smell is a mouthwatering and a sensory enlightening experience.
Creating The Perfect Cup
Good Ole Drip Roast: 2 tbsp medium grind coffee to 8 ounces of 195-205 degree water.
Stylish Pour Over: 28 grams of coarse ground coffee to 310 grams of 200 degree water.
Classic Chemex: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700 grams of water.
The Small Batch, Fair Trade Way
Fair Trade certified coffee ensures the origin of a product.
Farmers that grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price, and their local community benefits as well. Such ethical practices are a fantastic way to make our coffee not just great, but a responsible product too!
A Fair Way To Grow Coffee
Long-term contracts with international buyers ensure that Fair Trade farmers receive consistency in pricing. It also ensures purchasing power which allows them to reinvest money into the quality of their crop.
Fair Trade organizations educate and encourage farmers to farm in environment friendly practices, which not only improves the local environment, but also makes for a better product.
A single coffee plant produces approximately 2,000 coffee cherries per growing season. Yielding about 4,000 coffee beans a year, or about one pound of roasted coffee. It takes up to three years for a coffee plant to mature and become cherry-producing. That's 4 years for a small coffee plant to start producing. Simply incredible!
It is estimated that coffee is directly linked to the welfare of some 20 million persons around the world whose livelihood depends on this seemingly ubiquitous food product.
The average cup of coffee contains 80-150 milligrams of caffeine. Espresso has an even higher concentration per ounce, but a standard serving is typically 1.5 to 2 ounces and so this makes the dose of caffeine about the same as a regular cup of black joe.

Wild Peru Coffee FAQ
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas by an organic coffee roaster and are sourced fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our bean, even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
Yea... we've struggled with this one. Our roaster has started roasting Peru Light closer to a medium because we have found that it just tastes so much better and brings out so much more of the delicious characteristics of the Peru bean.
We are actually on the hunt to find a really great bean to light roast. Until then, Peru Light is more like "Peru Light Medium."
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
