Background: 

This coffee is from a farmer in the Village El Eden, in San Jose del Lourdes district in the San Ignacio province. One of our favorite places for coffee! The flavours of the coffees here simply speak to us.

Marcial Oliveras farm El Pacasho has 3 hectares with coffee and is located in El Diamante at an altitude of 1750 masl. It's a medium farm in Peruvian standards. The varieties are Yellow Caturra and Bourbon. And in our experience the Yellow Caturra in these environments tend to stand out as something else. It’s a family operation, but they have pickers helping them in the season. They harvest from July - October. Yield per tree is generally low. The farm has a small beneficio where Marcial processes the coffee.

The coffee is pulped and fermented for 18 - 30 hours in bags or a small tank before washed and rinsed, and then sun dried next to her house. Drying takes about 10-20 days.
