This organic microlot from Alejandro Rojas, comes from the El Diamante area of the San Ignacio province in Northern Peru. 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 in their farms. The main variety grown in El Diamante is Caturra, with few producers planting anything else since rust isn’t a big problem yet, due to relatively new trees and the cool climate. San Jose de Lourdes is an area with huge potential for quality with a relatively unique micro-climate compared to other areas in Cajamarca, in El Diamante for example it has much higher rainfall and cooler climate, which contributes to a very complex and acidity driven cup profile.

In the cup: Mango, green grape, cane sugar. Crisp, sweet and juicy.

price: $18.00
