Odar Valazco owns Finca La Bolania in the Chrinos region of Cajamarca, Peru. This farm is Organic and Fair Trade certified. Finca La Bolania is 2 hectares and has roughly 7,000 trees. He produces between 800 and 1150 kgs of coffee annually. Odar utilizes a 30 hour wet fermentation followed by 12 days of patio drying. This lot is comprised of Caturra, Bourbon and Geisha together.
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.
