I took this movie at 1 fps in Peruvian coffees have Central American brightness but in a South American coffee flavor package overall. The good organic lots do have more of a "rustic" coffee character.: Organic Peru ... you can get it anywhere at the “Concurso de Cafe de Calidad” this past week. It starts in round 2 with Cupping is a method of tasting coffee by steeping grounds in separate cups for discrete amounts of ground coffee, to reveal good flavors and defects to their fullest. It has formal elements and methodology in, then cleanup, setting up the new tables for round 3. I kinda like the dead space in between rounds … but actually, I had forgot my camera when the jury went off to discuss the round 2 scores, so it was an accident… at the nearest table you can see me, looking kinda scruffy, in the light shirt, and Geoff Watts from Intelligentsia in the dark green shirt, along with Maritsa and Lourdes, catadores peruanas. -tom
ps: I put together this little movie of clips from the Peru competition too … rock out!
