Every year, our green partner, Mercanta, send a member of the team out to Peru to select the very best lots of new crop to add to the offering. This lot was produced by two smallholder farmers, Martin & Segundo, who both live in the small town of La Union, high in Peru’s Cajamarca region.

Often in the region, producers will occasionally have more than one coffee farm and often purchasing a few hectares here and there as it becomes available, such as the case for Martin Santos Zurita. For this lot, coffee from his farm La Quebrada was used. Located at 1900 meters above sea level, some distance from Martin's home, Martin is able to produce an amazing cup profile due to the farms excellent climate and fertile soil. Segundo Marcos Quinde lives at 1850 meters above sea level at his farm in La Union with his family. Here, Martin uses 4 of 5 total hectares to produce coffee to provide for his family.

Coffee processing techniques in the region are tried and tested methods of production, often passed down through the generations. Harvest season for La Union spans from June to October. The process begins with the cherries being selectively handpicked, before being sorted by hand into ripe and over ripe. Next, the coffee is pulped, with each producer has their own de-pulper located on the farm, often close to the house. Once the coffee has been de-pulped, the beans are placed in a wet fermentation tank for anywhere between 30-36 hours, depending on the climate. Finally, the coffee is washed and placed on raised beds to dry for around a month (25-30 days) depending on the level of rain.
