Getting product details...

From Rinaldo's Coffee:

We're delighted to receive the new crop of organic coffee in a return to the Union Y Fe Peruvian farming co-operative. It's also certified FairTrade. It's a sweet, citrus coffee with great balance. From small holdings over 3 valleys in this beautiful region the farmers have been eco-savvy and use solar driers to dry the green beans after they've been washed.

Union y Fe was founded in 2014 by 233 farmers in the La Coipa area of Cajamarca, around the town of San Ignacio. The aim was to find a market for their coffees, with a focus on both quality and sustainable relationships with partners. They constructed a mill and cupping lab in the town of San Ignacio at 1300 masl, where the climate is cool and less humid, making it ideal for storing coffee and preserving quality.

Lorenzo Cruz, the co-op manager, has been working to improve coffee quality through cupping every producer’s lots separately and mapping the areas which produce the highest scores. Through this mapping, they are able to help pinpoint areas with ideal growing conditions, and producers that are processing and drying their coffee well. They are also then able to better support farmers with relevant technical assistance and education
