Jesus Garcia Fernandez owns and operates Finca El Roble, a 3.5 hectare farm in the San Jose de Lourdes municipality of Peru's Cajamarca region. About 10,000 coffee trees inhabit his farm, it is certified organic and has bountiful shade plants. During harvest, only the ripest cherries are selected for processing and promptly depulped on the same day and set to ferment overnight for an average period of 20 hours.
After this, the coffee is washed 3 times to remove all of the mucilage from the parchment. Once fully washed, coffee is placed on raised beds inside a covered parabolic dryer where it is moved daily throughout the 15-20 day period it takes to adequately dry coffee here. A few challenges for Jesus include Leaf Rust and the Ojo de Gallo disease, but that doesn't stop him from wanting to continue to increase the quality of his coffee and expand his processing facilities to handle more volume in the future.
