    We are excited to start working with Cultivar, specialty coffee exporters in Peru who have a very close relationship with local producers.

     

    Cultivar: This micro lot is produced by three neighbours: Fredy, Eleuterio and Mario. Like many other growers in this region, Fredy, Eleuterio and Mario have small coffee plots in production. Up to 2009/2010, there wasn’t much production of coffee in the region. But because of outbreaks of plagues in maize and beans, people started to plant some more coffee trees as an alternative source of income. Before that, coffee production was not of any great significance to the families around Santiago de Oropel.

    The three neighbours are members of the association AAVAPA (Asociacion de Agricultores del Valle Pauran), together with 18 other members. They started to focus on improving the quality of their coffee three years ago. They are far away from any bigger town or city in the province and struggle with the high transportation prices to get their coffee to the nearest market. Selling their coffee against commercial market prices doesn’t therefore make a lot of sense. Yet, having their farms in such a unique micro region and coffees with a completely different flavor profile than other coffees from the Central coffee region of Peru, they would be crazy not to try and enter the specialty coffee market.

    Cultivar: ”Last year was the first to start working with this original lot from the north of the country. Not far from Jaén (Cajamarca), in Miraflores del Sur we find Ángel Berrillos’s farm, El Palto. Being one of 10 siblings, his entire family, including his father, currently works in the coffee and agriculture sector. At 1600 meters above sea level, his 4-hectare farm has traditionally grown Catimor plants, a variety very resistant to rust but often not very good in terms of quality, however a few years ago he planted trees with a very distinctive characteristic: the grains were much larger than average. He tells us that he saw this special plant from a neighbor and wanted to see what the quality would be like. Unsurprisingly, this small plot of 300 trees is what we believe to be the Maraogype variety, offering a very interesting cup profile.
