About the farm

This coffee comes from the El Guayaquil farm in the Chirinos district of Cajamarca, known for growing the best Peruvian coffee. Cleyder and his wife Marina farm on an area of only three hectares, at an altitude of almost 1,800 meters. The coffee is grown under the shade of trees, the local guabas pajuros, and fertilized with island guano and compost. Both husband and wife have been growing coffee for more than 20 years, so they know how important the speed of harvesting is. They, therefore, hire six additional seasonal pickers to help during the harvest season.

About the processing

After the harvest, the coffee is washed and left for 16 hours to rest. Initially, it is dried in reduced sunlight and moved constantly to ensure even drying. The drying period can last between 25 and 30 days. Once dried the coffee is stored in plastic and rested. Then it is transported to Falcon Coffees‘ warehouse in Jaen where it is assessed for quality and priced. From there, it goes to Café Selva Norte SAC where checked for any defects before being bagged and moved to the coast for shipping.
