About this Coffee


Who are La Prosperidad?

They are a cooperative that is composed of 817 coffee producers with more than 54 years of experience, focused on environmental care and building relationships based on trust and respect. They have a long history of being coffee producers and are passionate about coffee. They collect and market coffee, generating a lot of value for their members. They are based in Chirinos, a small town in the province of San Ignacio, Cajamarca.


About Cafe Mujeres

 Their membership includes 214 women, and they've been working with them since 2009 to support family work, like food preparation and child care, as well as offer them opportunities for continuous training and financial or health support.

 

They purchase coffee from women members of their organization under the brand "Women's Harvest," which they've been doing since our founding in 1968. These female coffee producers grow a number of different varietals, including Pache, Caturra, Typica, Mundo Novo, and Catuai, at altitudes between 1400-1700 meters above sea level.


How was the coffee processed?

The coffee is harvested selectively, only mature red cherries are collected, and the same day of the harvest, it is spread out. It is then fermented for 24 hours and washed, after which it is placed in polypropylene blankets and goes to the solar dryer. The drying period is about 15 days, during which the coffee reaches optimal humidity before delivery to La Prosperidad.


The role of La Prosperidad for this coffee

The coffee is processed at the Café Selva Norte processing plant, and the size of the coffee grain is 0.5 centimeters. La Prosperidad provide their own organic fertiliser to their members and it's called Pachakushi, a Quechua term, which means "happy land," main inputs are coffee pulp.

 

Field extensionists provide technical assistance to produce quality coffees in fertilisation issues, maintenance of plots, prevention of pests and diseases, harvest, and post-harvest.

 

They are committed to the well-being of its partners, collaborators, the community, and clients. They offer quality organic coffee, taking advantage of the special natural conditions of their area and the experience of their cooperative history.
