Getting product details...

From The Coffee Officina:

Lima Coffee was founded in 2016 by Rony Guerrero. Rony had previously worked in quality control with one of Peru’s largest exporters, and was very aware of the quality and potential some producers have, but saw those coffees being blended into large commercial lots. Rony decided to set up a cooperative with a different structure, he wanted to base the membership on cup quality. He knew of areas and producers in Cajamarca who have great quality and approached them to buy their best prepared coffees, with the aim of selling them as microlots.

Many of the producers are in the San Ignacio province within Cajamarca, and they all have their own small depulper and drying beds or patio. The coffee is processed in the traditional washed style, with a long dry fermentation.

This coffee was made from a number of day lots from the San Jose de Lourdes, Huabal and Chirinos areas of Cajamarca which are three of the best quality areas in Northern Peru. These lots were a mixture of caturra, bourbon and pache and from farms at an altitude of between 1750 and 2000 masl. The cup profile of this coffee is full of citrus, berries and honey.
