About This Coffee

This Fairtrade & Organic microlot comes from farmer Guersy de la Cruz and his farm Fundo Don Eulalio in the Amazonas region of northern Peru. 

 

THE PRODUCER

 

Guersy de la Cruz is a young farmer and member of Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP), also known as "El Palto." The cooperative is located in the Amazonian Andes in northern Peru. Founded in 2003 by 35 small farmers, the association now consists of 189 active members with a total area of 549 hectares in production. All members produce organic and Fair Trade Certified coffee. Women represent 40 of the organizations families, including continual representation on their Board of Directors. The Association's mission is to meet the demand of our buyers in specialty coffee allowing an increase in income for the members and their families.

Guersy joined the co-op in 2012 and is now in charge of accounts for the group. His farm Fundo Don Eulalio occupies 3ha of land at an altitude of 1,400masl and cultivates the varieties of Bourbon, Caturra & Pache.

 

THE PROCESS

 

This lot was produced with a traditional washed process. Cherries are selectively harvested, floated to separate any low-density cherries, pulped and then dry-fermented for an average of 30 hours. After washing in clean water the coffee is dried on raised beds for around 20 days, or until the optimum moisture content has been reached.

 

THE REGION

 

COOP JUMARP is based in the western Cordillera mountain range of the peruvian Andes. The Amazon region of the Andes is know as the "Selva Alta" (High forest). The Selva Alta is a unique dense and humid rainforest ecosystem located at high altitude, ideal for growing high quality specialty coffees. The coffee is grown under the canopy of the native Amazon rainforest.
