About this Coffee
Who is Andres Bazos?
Andres is a coffee producer who inherited a farm from his great grandfather 80 years ago. His farming practices have come a long way since he took over the farm and in the last decade has invested heavily in learning more about specialty coffee and implementing best practices and techniques.
About Llave de Oro
"Llave de Oro" (Gold Key) was established in 1970. The farm primarily grows Caturra, Catimor, and Bourbon varieties across 36 hectares in Sanchirio Palomar, Chanchamayo province in the region of Junin. The altitude ranges from 1600 to 1800 masl.
How was the coffee processed?
The farm has implemented strict quality control measures throughout the coffee production process. The harvest is carried out when the coffee cherries are fully ripe, with no green cherries. The processing and fermentation is done in-house using stainless steel equipment, and an anaerobic fermentation process is used. The cherries are sorted and then sealed in stainless steel tanks for 24 hours, the coffee is then pulped and fermented again for another 24 hours in ceramic tanks. For the drying they are put on raised beds in a drying room unitl 10-11% moisture.
What Andres wants you to know
All fertilisers used in the coffee farm are authorized by the Rainforest Alliance standard. The farm produces 50,000 kilos of green coffee annually, and its high-quality output is the result of many years of experience, combined with guidance from many teachers and references.
The farm only produces green coffee and has a focus on continuous improvement of all its processes to maintain and increase the quality and volume of its coffee beans each year.
How does Khipu Coffee know the producer?
We met Andres at the Aeropress Championship in Lima, October 2022. Initially we were introduced online when we were interviewing Peruvian coffee producers for our Instagram series, however, it wasn't until we were in Peru that we met up with Andres. We didn't manage to visit his farm in 2022 but we were not too far from it when visiting La Chacra D'Dago and Finca Rosenheim.
