/ Peru San Ignacio, Chirinos | washed | 1700 masl | mixed varietals
Our founder Fran recently journeyed to Peru, with his eldest son Tom, to meet our producers in San Ignacio Province. This coffee blend combines micro-lots from smallholder producers in the three main coffee-growing areas of San Ignacio: Chirinos, San José de Lourdes, and Tabaconas.
This area has ideal growing conditions for coffee with altitudes above 1700masl and the area is truly starting to showcase much of its hidden potential.
Many producers still have the old, pure Arabica varieties: the main varieties being red and yellow Caturra, Castillo and Typica with some ancient Bourbon plants scattered almost at random. Producers in the area pick and process their coffee themselves- this coffee is dry fermented for 24 - 36 hours before being dried on raised beds.

This area is renowned for producing some of Colombia's finest specialty micro-lot coffees, and are now gaining a reputation for their higher quality commercial community coffees. Coffees are selected from within the Planadas community, ensuring quality and consistency and traceability.
