Meet the farmer

Most of the coffee produced in Perú is processed by hand on the producer’s farm, and Kovachii is no different. Sourced from the North of Perú in the region of Cajamarca, cherries are harvested, de-pulped, processed and then dried either on patios, drying beds or on tarps.

Coffee story

Because of the geographical challenges within Perú this has meant coffee is often sold locally to a buyer in their community, transported a little closer and sold again, and this model repeated until it reaches its destination. This can be tricky as both traceability and quality can be lost on this journey. To counter this issue, our Kovachii Organic is sourced via micro-buying stations closer to these communities. This benefits the farmers and communities in a number of ways; farmers receive a fair price for the coffee regardless of market conditions that day, and they receive support and help from our buyers at a local level, helping and training them in practices that might improve their farming and coffee quality.

Growing region

Cajamarca is a large region in the north of Perú, including Jaén, San Ignacio, Cutervo , Santo Domingo and Hualgayoc. The location can be a challenge for the farmers, with much of the coffee grown up to 8 hours away from the nearest town where they might sell. This could be one of the influencing factors into why nearly all the coffee is home-processed and dried at farm-level, as it allows the farmer to retain more control over when to sell.
