Washed Caturra & Bourbon by Cortez Family
This coffee is produced by the Cortez family in the region of Cajamarca, Peru. Their farms are beautiful and surrounded by pine and guama trees that provide shade for the coffee plantation. The shade trees help to maintain cooler temperatures allowing the cherries to mature slowly and develop more sugar content.
This farm is located in the highlands that start at 1900 m.a.s.l and go all the way up to 2000 m.a.s.l. During the harvest, the Cortez family can employ upto 80 pickers from the area providing work and additional income to their local community.
