INFORMATION ON THE ORIGIN

Produced by Wilmer Alarcon Mirez, this coffee comes from the San Ignacio region in northern Peru. Wilmer is a 38-year-old producer whose experience is well established. Indeed, Wilmer has been working from an early age on his family's farm, which he inherited 2 years ago. Today he is an important member of the Santuario cooperative to whom he delivers his coffee every year and from which he enjoys all the benefits. This cooperative operation is very widespread in Peru because it allows the rights and interests of producers to be asserted against certain large companies. In addition, cooperatives such as Santuario offer producers like Wilmer the possibility of a long-term, sustainable investment in their farms.

Through a program to replace aging coffee trees with new, more resistant varieties, as well as campaigns against pests or the development of organic pesticides, the Santuario cooperative enables Wilmer to cope with the effects of climate change. and ensure a sustainable future for his farm. This is the first year that we have worked with Wilmer Alarcon Mirez and the Santuario cooperative. This new partnership was made possible through our import partner Red Fox Coffee Merchants. 

Grown at an altitude of around 1,820 meters, this coffee is made from the Caturra and Bourbon varieties. It is picked at full maturity and sorted by floatation first, then by hand, to remove overripe or underripe cherries. It is then pulped using a mechanical depulper, then submerged in water for 20 to 32 hours. Finally, it is passed under a stream of water to remove the remaining mucilage, before being dried slowly on raised beds for 8 to 15 days. Its classic profile and medium roast make Valle Inca a perfect option for espresso or filter.

This very sweet and unctuous coffee tastes of nougat and dried apricot, on a finish reminiscent of star anise.
