Spending Christmas away from home in Northwest Arizona is hard sometimes, but on the other hand, it is summer in Lima and the days are longer & the weather generally nice.

This week in Real People, Really Good Coffee we’ll visit with our good friend:
David Torres Bisetti – Lima, Peru
Several years ago, I had the good fortune of connecting with David Torres Bisetti at the Mistura Gastronomy Fair in Lima, and through that association met the people involved in the Curibamba project in Chanchamayo, Peru. David is quiet with a soft spoken nature, but you quickly sense his dedication and expertise with coffee. It’s a passion in him that dates back to his grandparents in 1958.
Today, he’s the owner of two coffee shops in Lima, one in Larcomar in Miraflores, and the more recent Tostaduria Bisetti in the historic artist district of Barranco.
