Dagoberto Marin founded 'La Chacra D Dago' in 2005, a third-generation coffee production company that has evolved from conventional to organic and now biodynamic farming methods.
This coffee is part of their experimental nano lots which they have undertaken over the last few years.
About their farm
The farm, situated at an altitude of 1550-1600m, is located in Palomar, which is about 30 minutes away from Villa Rica, a renowned coffee town in Central Peru.
It's a unique and special farm because of it's biodynamic origins and being the only certified biodynamic coffee farm in Peru.
How was this coffee processed?
The fruits are harvested (20th grades Brix), then fermented in cherry for 140 hours in Grainpro bags and at a temperature of 8º, finally the coffee is removed from the cherry and put on African beds for a solar drying of 20 days. This process was inspired by Cesar Marin's trip to the Lamastus Family Estate in Panama, the creators of this process.
What the producer want you to know
This is a coffee that is a result of years of experimentation and testing. It gives them great pleasure to be able to offer this coffee and it's something they have been working hard on for many years.
How does Khipu know the producer?
We've known Cesar Marin for a few years and met for the first time at Ficafe (Annual Coffee Conference) in October 2022. It was here that he was showcasing his experimental lots and invited us to visit the farm which we did in November 2022.
