Coffee Process

Coffee Farmers

Alpes Andinos, a producer association has helped Martin and Segundo with accessing organic certifications and creating coffee ready to export, who along with Mercanta, are responsible for bringing this coffee into our cups.

The cherries were handpicked and placed in a wet fermentation tank for 30-36 hours, after that they were washed and placed on raised beds to dry for a month.

This coffee was grown using purely organic methods and with the fertiliser being made up from a mix of compost and guano, providing a nutrient rich top layer of soil improving the fertility of the crop.

This beautiful microlot is from two small farms in La Union, a small town in the region of Cajamarca. Grown by Martin Santos Zurita and Segundo Marcos Quindelives.

Peruvian Organic Coffee - Microlot

Fantastic coffee!

This is definitely my favourite from Khipu! Will be ordering again 🙏

Peruvian coffee has a taste that is hard to pin down. It's known for the chocolate, caramel and toffee flavours, but in the last few years it's getting harder and harder to pinpoint a single flavour.

As more and more different coffee regions in Peru start to export, you'll be pleasantly surprised with every Peruvian coffee you try, from floral to fruity, the coffee flavours available are becoming more and more unique to each region.
