Through extensive cupping, Orlando Coronel’s farm has been singled out as one of the top lots from the region this year. Orlando lives in the town of Flor de Norte in the district of Huabal, around 2 hours from the association headquarters in Jaen; high in Peru’s Cajamarca department. With a total population of just over 200 people living in only 45 households, it is clear that the town is rural to the extreme. Nonetheless, the climate, altitude and soil are ideal for growing exceptional coffee.

Orlando, aged 30, lives at his farm with his wife and two younger children. Orlando’s is fortunate to own two farms, one of which he received as an early inheritance on his wedding day. Like so many producers in the region, Orlando learned about coffee production from his parents and grandparents. Coffee production is Orlando’s primary means of income, with any fruit trees or other produce grown reserved only for personal consumption. The name El Guayaquil is in reference to the bamboo trees found on the farm. Like many other farms in the region, the name is symbolic, reflecting the distinguishing characteristics in the surrounding area.
