The Cajamarca region holds a lot of potential for quality coffee, with ideal growing conditions and great varieties, but quality is often lost in picking, processing and drying, with producers lacking infrastructure and knowledge. Our import partners have worked hard to source excellent coffee that makes up this regional blend.
This lot is made up of day lots of coffees from producers all over Cajamarca that were purposefully blended together based on cup profile.
27 different producers contributed to this blend and all of the day lots come from the middle part of the harvest in high altitude areas, which were processed and dried on the producers’ farms. Most producers in Northern Peru have their own hand pulping machine and fermentation tank where they process the coffee, before drying it on their patio or raised beds. Once the coffees have been processed, farmers deliver them as parchment to our export partners warehouse in Jaen, where they are graded, analysed for moisture content, roasted and cupped.
