Nueva Esperanza Lot 23 - Amazonas
Nestled in a remote area outside of Jaén, Peru, some 4200 people reside in 15 main communities scattered over the 150-square mile district of La Jalca Grande. It takes a lot of determination and intense, ongoing work just to live in this terrain, much less grow anything, and the producers of this lovely coffee do just that. In the mists and moisture of the forest, they plant and cultivate coffee trees on slopes sometimes approaching 45 degrees.
Technical assistance from their cooperative on proper crop management and good environmental and agricultural practices helps guarantee the quality of their coffee. At Catalyst Trade, we are excited to share this community lot with you: a stand out on the cupping table every single time and showcasing the rich terroir of the Amazonas region.
Don't wait any longer to try the unique and under-appreciated coffees sourced from this rugged Peruvian terrain known for both sublime sierras and dense jungle.
Finca La Encañada single farm lot - San Martín
Dionicio’s father bought the farm in the 1970’s and his mother currently lives there, along with a pulsing flock of various fowl—chickens and ducks, mostly—, some farm dogs, and various full time farm employees. Finca La Encañada is bordered by the beautiful Tonchima River and has 12 hectares planted to coffee. Dionicio also has a still for aguardiente (sugar cane liqueur) which we sampled during our recent visit, and an experimental farm for varieties native to the area.
Catalyst Trade is the sole buyer of Dionicio’s raw green coffee for the North American market, providing an exclusive offering for small batch roasters in the United States. We dream of nights we’ve spent under the velvet star-speckled sky on his farm, with cold local beer in our hand and beautiful roasted chicken in our bellies. It’s no wonder we’re stoked about our ongoing partnering with him and his plans for future experimentation, and to have his entire coffee crop to offer to our small batch roaster partners! ---
