Product description

Flavio Human is a first generation coffee farmer who owns around 3ha of land near the El Diamante village in San Jose de Lourdes, Cajamarca region. Don Flavio migrated to San Ignacio province from his native Piura and bought land in the remote village of El Diamante in 2002, and he immediately started planting coffee. In those days his farm was entirely made up of Typica variety, or national as they call it in Peru, and it remained that way until coffee leaf rust made it unsustainable to continue planting Typica.

Despite the rust issues in the region, Flavio still has mostly Caturra variety in his farm, since he likes the productivity and quality that it gives in high altitudes.

Caturra, a natural mutation of Bourbon, is recognised for its compact size and exceptional bean quality. 

Flavio uses a mixture of organic and non-organic fertilisers on his farm, mostly applying composted coffee cherry and guano de Isla, which is a common fertiliser used in Peru and is manure from birds that live on an island off the coast.

This is in most part due to the fact that he intercrops his coffee with yuca (cassava), beans, peas and pineapples, all of which are for his and his family's consumption.
