Israel Vasquez is a coffee grower in the Shumbana village, Santa Rosa District, in the Jaen province north in Peru. We have seen a good amount of great coffees from Santa Rosa lately. There are many farmers in the area, and some of them need some support on post-harvest processing to produce higher quality coffees.
The farm, El Catache Dorada, is located at 1618 masl. It's a small farm, just 1 hectare planted with 80% Caturra and 20% Catuai. Israel has about 4000 coffee trees. The farm has a small beneficio where he processes the coffee.
The coffee is dry fermented for 14 hours before washed and rinsed, and then dried on a black plastic tarp on a cement patio next to his house. Drying takes about 15 days. Israel has plans to improve its fermentation tanks and build drying beds in the future. Harvest months are from May to September with a peak in July and August. Israel employs 8 pickers during the harvest and has 3 permanent workers on the farm.
This Peru washed coffee is very clean and smooth. With delicate notes of plum, citrus and hints of cloves, finish with a sweet aftertaste of milk chocolate.
