Pachamama is a Quechuan and Aymaran word from the indigenous communities in Bolivia that translates to "Earth Mother". We're extremely excited to bring you this new flagship blend, a nod to Alpaca Coffee's origin story, and a celebration of the beautiful planet we live on.
A blend comprised of two beans: our Brazilian Santos and Peruvian Gonzilla.
The port of Santos is located within the city of Santos in the state of São Paulo. Since the 19th Century, Brazil Santos has been a blend of coffees from the region of Minas Gerais and the Alto Mogiana region. Each brings body, sweetness and acidity to the blend.
The Gonzilla Estate in Peru is situated in the Andes mountain range, between 1,100 and 1,800 metres above sea level. The cool climate at this altitude means that the coffee fruit matures much more slowly, allowing the flavours to develop inside the bean.
Ethically sourced specialty coffee: Our specialty coffee selection is carefully curated to take your tastebuds on an adventure. We place a major focus on traceable coffee sources to support family businesses and farmers that adhere to international standards on sustainability, better pricing, and quality.
Zero Waste Roasting: Our coffee is roasted using locally collected, leftover coffee grounds in the UK. The collected coffee grounds are turned into coffee logs, which are then used as a form of biofuel to power the coffee roaster. Any leftover heat is rerouted to heat the warehouse.
100% Plastic Free & Compostable: Alpaca Coffee is 100% plastic-free, from our labels and our bags, all the way to our shipping boxes and compostable tape. Our coffee pouches are also home compostable. Once you’re done, you can rip them up and pop them in your council food waste bin or your home compost.
- Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint: For every 10 bags of coffee sold, Alpaca Coffee will plant one tree in the Amazon Rainforest with the leading environmental NGO - One Tree Planted. By doing so, we offset any carbon that is emitted along our coffee supply chain and support local communities.
Any tips or key information to help shops sell to consumers?
- Store coffee out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place
- Completely plastic free and compostable coffee bags
- To dispose of our bags simply tear it up and add to the council food waste bin, or to the home compost
