About the Producer
The northern Peruvian city of Cajamarca boasts a stunning landscape filled with vast mountain ranges, as well as a part of the Amazon Rainforest. It was once a booming hub for an ancient Incan empire, remaining a trade and culture epicentre for Peru today.
Cajamarca has a subtropical highland climate, presenting stable temperatures ranging between 16-20°C all year round. Most rainfall occurs in the warmest months of the year, which combined with the mineral rich mountain soil makes the region particularly fertile.
Most of Peru’s coffee is grown on small farms that collaborate to form larger cooperatives. These groups help to improve farming conditions, pay and traceability for the small growing lots. Cooperatives are provided fair trade certification, with a large portion focusing on organic growing methods such as natural fertilisers and pest control methods.
Flavours of plum, red apple and milk chocolate are common for this cup, with a mild acidity and smooth body, making it a pleasant drink.
