About Finca Chirilioma
Finca Chirilioma covers an area of 4 hectares and is located at an altitude of 1950 metres above sea level. The farm is named after its location - "Chiriloma" which means "cold hill", as special coffee is known to grow in higher places in the mountains. The farm is located in a tropical forest, which makes it unique and away from other coffee farms.
The farm cultivates different types of coffee, including Bourbon, Caturra, Maragoguipe, Mundonovo, Orange and Red Geisha and Typica. Edwin has 3.5 hectares in total cultivating coffee.
How was the coffee processed?
The coffee is hand selected and harvested. The cherries are cleaned, floated, and fermented for several days at temperatures between 20 to 24 c°t. The farm also uses their own coffee compost. Edwin has a drum on the farm to process the coffee and screens them to have a medium seed size.

How does Khipu know the producer?
We met Edwin at Ficafe (Annual Coffee Conference) in October 2022. We were introduced by Eric Jala from Alpes Andinos and planned to visit the farm in December 2022. However, because of the strikes that were taking place in Cusco, we were unable to visit Quillabamba from Santa Teresa and road blocks stopped us from being able to get there. We do plan to visit Edwin and more producers from Quillabamba on our return to Peru in 2023.
