A new release - Peru - Fredy Huachohillca

Bright, Fruity & Delicious.

Our second coffee from Peru. Brewed as filter, full of bright and fruity notes with a silky honey like body, this coffee is an excellent example of the delicate intricate flavours that higher altitude farming in Peru has to offer.



The Producers

This coffee comes from the Palma farm, a small 2.7 hectare plot situated just over 2000masl.

The coffee comes to us though the Cooperativa Agraria cafetalera Valle de Incahuasi (CACVI) which was created at the start of 2005 headed by the manager Claudio Ortiz Osis. In 2022 it groups 494 members that are formed in 13 committees, 11 in Inkawasi 2 in Ayacucho. Currently the cooperative has around 14 associate producers in different areas.



It is becoming clearer that climate change and fluctuating temperatures are producing problems for plots at this altitude. Droughts are becoming more frequent so one of the key ways to help mitigate risks from climate has been the installation of shade trees around the growing areas as well as effective irrigation building and effective fertilizer dispersal to maintain soil health.

Following the harvest months of August to November the picked cherry is rested before being pulped and rested. It is then washed and dried for a period of 12-15 days on African beds before being prepared for storage and delivered to a warehouse in Andahuaylas.
