Aracari’s Weekly Insight #18: The best coffee in the World

Question:
Which Peruvian Coffee is known for being the best coffee in the world?

Answer:
Tunki Coffee is the Peruvian Coffee known for being the best coffee in the world after it was voted as such by the Specialty Coffee Association of America in 2010. The coffee is grown in the Puno region of southeastern Peru by the farmer Wilson Sucaticona. His plantation, which covers only 3 hectares of land, is located in the Sandía valley in the high rainforest region. The coffee beat other contenders from countries such as Colombia, Kenya and Guatamala, and since winning the prize it has become very popular worldwide.

Peru is becoming increasingly renowned for it’s coffee: it is the World’s biggest producer of certified Organic coffee and it has secured a booming trade across the globe by retaining very competitive prices. The ideal climate for coffee growing can be found on the Eastern slopes of the Andes moving into the rainforest, as the climate turns warmer in the higher reaches of the Amazon. Big producing areas are Chanchamayo, Quillabamba and Northern Peru.

If you are in Lima, perhaps the best place to try and buy Tunki coffee is at Arabica Espresso bar on Recavarren near Park de Kennedy in Miraflores. This has become a very popular café amongst locals as it is renowned from sourcing coffee only from the best Peruvian plantations. As well as the location in central Miraflores, Arabica are soon to open a second venue on the plaza municipal of Barranco.
