About the coffee
The beans of Finca Chocan coffee come from the Cajamarca region, located in the north of the Andean country and bordering Ecuador. Our beans grow at an altitude of 1750m (m.a.s.l.). They are of the Caturaí variety and come from Finca El Chocan.
Within 12 hours after harvesting, the beans are removed from the pulp with the help of a pulper, washed with fresh spring water and fermented. Afterwards, the beans are spread out in the sun, where they are checked and sorted out once again, and then dried for about 2 weeks.
About the farm
The finca and its owner Miguel Chocan are members of Programa Familia. An agricultural extension program in Peru with the mission to promote the self-determined work and development of small coffee producers. Since 2003, the initiative has been advising and supporting farmers like Miguel on farm management, resource management, and sustainable farming practices. It is also a network of many small farmers in the region. Small farms are to be strengthened in a self-determined and sustainable way in order to be able to compete on the world market with their coffees.
