Darkest Peru

Dear Aunt Lucy,
I hope you are sitting comfortably so that I can tell you all about something that might be even better than marmalade sandwiches. The bean cookers at Commonfolk recently found a coffee from near our home, Carjamarca, which is just to the North of Darkest Peru, right Aunt Lucy? Well, once they tasted it they thought it could be named Darkest Peru to tell the people of Morning-tone about the other side of the world. One of the coffees comes from home, but the other coffees they are mixing together are from Colombia and Mexico, places similar to home but very different too I’m sure. Have you ever travelled to these places Aunt Lucy? Tommy says Mexico has wonderful fish tacos, which sounds like some kind of marmalade sandwich with fish instead. Sam said Colombia is home to their friend Diego who is a world champion barista and sends some special coffee he makes just for them. Anyway, they mix all of these coffees together and call it Darkest Peru. It will be delicious with some milk from cows or milk from oats. I'm not sure how porridge makes milk, but it is very delicious. It tastes like the chocolate biscuits the explorer shared with us and is sweet like the toffee apples I tried back in London, but I am very happy it reminds me of a marmalade sandwich which has the vitamins and minerals a bear needs for the day. I miss you very much Aunt Lucy and will send you a bag to the home for retired bears to share with your friends. Lots of love, Paddington

P.S. We enlisted the foremost Paddington expert in the southern hemisphere, David Easton who you might know from such cafes as Ol’ Mate and more recently one of our barista trainers. David didn’t choose the Paddington life, it was thrust upon him by his son's obsession and proclivity for storing snacks in headwear.

P.S.S. He is a true renaissance man, with many creative skills in photography, graphic design, film and audio, we definitely came to the right place for an inventive take on Darkest Peru. You can follow @davidjeasty on instagram and see what kind of mischief he gets up to.

This is just a starting place. We encourage experimenting and breaking the rules.
