Tunki Peruvian Coffee

We are pleased to announce that we have recently been able to source an amazingly fine new coffee from South America.

This exceptional coffee  is sustainably managed and grown at an elevation of 1600-1800 meters (5300-6000 feet) thus ensuring its unmistakably high acidity and clean crisp taste. The name "Tunki" comes from a locally found wild bird, these birds among other native species are allowed to flourish by careful management of the planted coffee trees. Wilkinson's have recently come into partnership with the only official UK importers of this remarkable fair trade coffee

These trees are farmed and the coffee hand produced without the use of any nasty pesticides or chemicals. Irrigated by the purest spring water of the Andes the coffee plants grow in harmony among the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley. Thus Tunki coffee is certified organic by the Biolatina authority of Peru. (www.biolatina.com)


The harvested beans are then wet process washed then patio dried by the indigenous Quechua and Aymara speaking families. These proud local peoples have worked the land in respectful harmony for generations, and we at Wilkinson's are pleased to bring the fruits of their careful labours to the United Kingdom.

Come try some of this excellent  addition  to our range of coffee:
