Peru El Limón
**All local pick up orders will remain available for 30 days. After 30 days they will be donated to a local charity due to storage space.**
Our El Limón was grown in the Cajamarca region known for some of the best specialty grade coffee in Peru. This northern region borders Ecuador and is nestled in the Andes Mountain Range. Cajamarca’s higher altitude along with its climate and soil have been a perfect recipe for amazing coffee. Though, in recent years this climate has been changing, growing hotter and wetter, resulting in a multitude of challenges for farmers and producers.
The Santuario cooperative has found some clever solutions to these climate changes as well as made coffee production a sustainable asset to their 400 plus smallholder members. Improving drying practices through the building of raised beds with parabolic covers is one major solution. Another is combating leaf rust and pests by planting the most resilient coffee varieties as well as finding organic means of improving soil and pest control. Not only are these innovations creating a major impact to the quality of life of Santario’s members but they are also yielding delicious results in the cup.
