This coffee is part of a series of organic coffees from small cooperatives in Peru that are all engaged in a reforestation program as part of a producer-led holistic solution to the complex sustainability challenges they face.
Maria Esmilda is a farmer and a member of the Cedros Cooperative in Cajamarca, a group we started to work with last year. Maria is part of the cooperative’s micro-lot program and just proved that the quality she produced last year was no fluke. She has two farms, El Pajuro and El Cedro that are one hectare each above 1830 masl in Sport Piura. They are mainly growing Caturra, but also Pache. The coffee is depulped, wet fermented for 22 hours, and then dried in a parabolic dryer.
Maria’s success last year, when she delivered one of the best coffees we had from Peru, has inspired her three sons. Each has his own farm, and this year they all delivered outstanding micro-lots, meaning we have four from the same family.
The support and quality control are managed by the cooperative. For the lots to qualify for our micro-lot program they have to cup above 87 points with distinct flavours, have good physical properties, and be within our standards on humidity and aW to maximize shelf life.
This organic coffee has soothing fruity floral notes that make a comforting cuppa. With notes of apple juiciness with rose floral notes, finish with jammy sweetness. A nice pick for an after lunch cuppa.
