Flavour Profile: Lovely balanced notes of citrus, berries and marzipan with a creamy body and a chocolate finish.
From the new Lima cooperative set up in 2016 to focus on separating great coffees into individual lots rather than loosing them by blending into large commercial grade batches. This lot is made up of beans from 5 small producers who each harvest, wash, de-pulp and dry their coffee in the traditional style on their own patios.
We love it’s rich creamy body and hearty chocolate finish.
100% Arabica Coffee, Certified Organic.
Our Cajamarca Organic blend comes from the Lima Coffee cooperative, which was founded in 2016 by Rony Guerrero. Rony previously worked in quality control with one of Peru’s largest exporters, and was very aware of the quality and great potential that some producers have. Seeing those coffees get blended into large commercial lots and therefore lost Rony decided to set up a cooperative with a different structure. He wanted to base the membership on cup quality.
He knew of areas and producers in Cajamarca who have great quality and approached them to buy their best prepared coffees, with the aim of selling them as microlots to the US market. In most cases cooperatives are formed by a group of producers with the aim of exporting their coffee and the coffee in their region, but Rony’s model is entirely based on quality and those producers that are more focused on quality.
The producers are in the San Ignacio province of Cajamarca (which lends its name to this lot), and they all have their own small de-pulper and drying beds or patio. The coffee is processed in the traditional washed style, with a long dry fermentation. This lot is made up of yellow and red Caturra, Bourbon & Pache from five producers; Luiz Antonio, Jacinto Jora Willaacero, Alexander Flores, Rosendo Cofiria and Gevaro Cruz. Rony stores the coffee in grainpro bags to
preserve the quality and doesn’t buy anything with a moisture content over 11%, to ensure stability and eliminate the risk of fading.
