About this coffee:

Selva Andina is a medium sized cooperative with 618 members. We were introduced last year, and this is our first year in business with them. This coffee is another of our value added communal producer blend concepts. We pre-contracted these coffees before the harvest so the producers can plan, invest and put in the necessary effort to increase the quality. The season has been challenging for them due to Covid-19, and they have really been working hard to meet the standards of specialty.

This lot is made up of coffee from producers delivering 3-15 bags each. They are smallholders with 1-3 hectare farms, located in high altitudes in Cajamarca and Amazonas. The altitude of the farms ranges from 1400 - 2000 masl. They mainly grow Caturra, Catuai, Pache and Costa Rica. The farmers have their small individual beneficios where they depulp, ferment, wash and dry the coffee themselves. Fermentation time after depulping is normally between 15-48 hours. Drying takes 12-25 days.

For the lots to qualify for the blend they have to cup above 86 points with distinct flavours, have good physical properties and be within our standards on humidity and aW to maximize shelf life. The deliveries can be as little as a few bags at a time, and every lot is evaluated individually before it is approved as part of the quality blend.

All the coffees are certified Organic, and the producers also receive a significant quality premium for the coffee delivered to this lot. Cafe Selva Norte is a coffee quality and training program and the cooperative is committed to reforestation as part of its sustainability initiative. For more details and to learn more about the sustainability project, scroll down to the origin section, or ask us for more information.

This washed coffee is smooth & creamy. With lots of stonefruits juicy characteristics, creamy mouthfeel and finish with pecan aftertaste. Perfect for a juicy morning espresso to start your day!
