Our first coffee from Peru comes from Cajamarca region in Northwest Peru. The producer,  Efrain Carhuallocllo Salvador takes his coffee very seriously and he’s highly quality focused. His coffee placed second on the very first Cup of Excellence competition in Peru. The farm, El Cerro, sits at an altitude of over 2000 meters above sea level and is affected by the cold nights, sunny days and strong winds. While these factors are not making farming duties any easier they are beneficial in developing complex, clean and fruity cup notes to coffee.
