Named after the Tunki bird or 'cockerel of the rocks', the Tunki plantation is located high above the city of Cusco near the town of Tunquimayo in south eastern Peru. The farm is run by Quechuan and Aymara people and is a member of CECOVASA, a renowned co-operative of coffee farms run by indigenous producers. In the cup Tunki has all the best attributes of the best Peruvian coffees, a rich chocolate body coupled with a delicate, lingering floral acidity and aroma that makes for an incredibly pleasing cup of coffee.
We'll be getting in some Tunki to roast very soon so watch out for it on the Fresh Coffee page!!
Having a few problems with supply but still hoping to get some Tunki in soon......watch this space!
