Details: 

This lot has been selectively hand picked from two different farms, run by sisters-in-law Emelina Coronel Cervera and Dina Davila Diaz. Emelina lives in a small village called Agua Colorada which is roughly one hour from the town of Flor del Norte. Her 3-hectare farm, El Aliso, is named after a tree present throughout the land, grown for household wood usage. She primarily grows the Bourbon varietal. Dina’s 2-hectare farm, La Palta, is situated in Flor del Norte, and is named ‘the avocado’ after the fruit that is common within this area of Peru. She grows Typica and Caturra on her farm. Coffee processing techniques in the region are tried and tested methods of production, often passed down through the generations. Certified organic, soil analysis is regularly conducted with fertiliser ‘guanao de las Islas’, spread in March and after the harvest in October and November. Consistent ‘selective’ tree pruning is conducted to maintain the

quality of the crop and to increase its yield. Farmers work in 15-year rotations, focusing on each variety individually. When a plant reaches the end of its 15-year life cycle, it will be dramatically cut back using the ‘Zoqueo’ practice.
