The farm is rich in clay soil, and despite the farm’s relative youth, it consistently produces exceptional coffee.
This particular lot is comprised of Caturra variety coffee. The cherries are harvested when they are fully ripe and undergo a thorough de-pulping process overnight. After de-pulping, the lot is fermented without water for around 25 hours. The lot is then rinsed with water three times, and dried for approximately 25 days. Cajamarca is a semi-dry, semi-cold, tropical highland of Peru with very fertile soil at high Andean mountain elevations. All of these factors contribute to the potential of specialty coffee production in the area, which is growing.
Smallholder producers farm on 2-3 hectares of land, many of which practice organic farming. Most farmers in the area work independently, but the recent increase in cooperatives has been effective in increasing the quality of coffees produced in the area.
ickle coffee is run by sisters, Rowena and Kate, with a focus on roasting exceptionally high quality specialty coffee, and a desire to only roast coffees they would love to drink everyday. All their coffee is sourced from ethical coffee importers who use sustainable practices and give back to the coffee grower’s communities and invest in the quality of their livelihoods as well as the quality of the coffee produced.
