Peru Cajamarca Aromas Del Valle
Throughout Peru the bulk of coffee production comes from small farms owned and operated by producers who follow organic farm management harmonious with their cultural connection to the land. Our current Peru Cajamarca Aromas Del Valle comes out of San Ignacio province, Cajamarca region, Peru.
Each producer cultivates their coffee crop individually on just a few acres of land. They intercrop with shade trees as well as bananas, corn and beans. Coffee cherries are carefully harvested and sorted before being depulped, fermented, washed and dried using their own micro-mills. While each producer has designed farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their individual needs, they also have an alliance with Aroma Del Valle.
Aroma Del Valle was established to assist small producers in Cajamarca and has 283 farmer members throughout the region. The goal is access to the specialty coffee market, but Aroma Del Valle also takes care of crucial projects and resources for the smallholder farmers. They coordinate basic infrastructure needs like road improvements, establishing local warehouses, and preparing coffee for export, as well as assistance with the Organic certification process. This crop is Certified Organic.
Lovely easy drinking. Sweet aroma with nuances of cocoa and chocolate, caramel, and stone fruits. Smooth, medium body with a little richness in the cup. Notes of cocoa, dark and milk chocolate, baking spices and subtle hints of peach, and black cherry.
