Peru / La Flor del Zapote

from 17.00

:: Description ::

Northern Peru is legendary for producing coffee with bright, rich flavors. At some of the highest global growing elevations, the “Amazon Andes” yield some of the best developed flavor profiles in the world.

La Flor del Zapote received its name from the Zapote which is a fruit tree that produces both delicious fruit and delicate flowers. The farm sits at an elevation of 1700m, and is nestled between the villages of La Palma and Las Pirias in the district of Chirinos, in the San Ignacio province of Peru.

The farm is now four decades old and is run by Rony Lavan Guerrero and his family of 8. All of the crops are cultivated using only organic fertilizers and are shade grown with surrounding wildflowers and fruit trees providing coverage for the coffee shrubs.

The Guerrero family focuses on specialty grade coffees, and grow several varieties that can be found on the La Flor del Zapote farm; Bourbon, Paiche, Catimor, and Caturra. The production is modest at approx. 200-250 bags per year, managed by the family with the help of 5-7 local workers hired during the harvest season.
