Segundo Ruiz Salvador owns the 11-hectare farm La Florida, where 8 hectares are in production for coffee. He produces only Yellow Caturra. His coffee has been processed in the classic washed style and this lot has been wowing us with notes of peach, cola, red berries and chocolate.
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.
