Traditionally in Peru, there isn't separation down to the farmer, but instead they focused on trying to raise the whole tide by securing lots of certifications and blending large lots together. This has made for lots of "good" coffee, while traditionally not ever seeing "great" coffee from the country. Rony Lavan of Lima Coffees has been cupping incoming lots and keeping them separate, as pared down as possible to try to identify quality producers among the larger lots of coffee they export and he identified this coffee. This lot is the result of 400 smallholders' hard work in Jaén, Cajamarca. This was separated and scored amazingly well with our partners at Cafe Imports.
