More about Peru El Guayacan

El Guayacan is a beautiful, majestic yellow tree that usually embellishes the coffee landscapes of Northern Cajmarca. These trees provide shade & protect the coffee trees underneath. These trees are magnificent, and it's worth a quick Google if you have time.
Around 300 coffee growers from the San Ignacio Province, in the department of Cajamerca, each with an average size of 1-3 hectares, make up this production of this varietal. They are known as the APROCASSI cooperative.
El Guayacan, which is grown in the Andes at the edge of the Amazon forest in Northern Peru, is an incredibly clean and complex coffee. The cup boasts ample sweetness with lightly punctuated notes of mandarin and floral. El Guayacan is considered to be the pinnacle of quality in Peruvian coffees. The growers of this coffee have collectively focused on improving the quality, increasing productivity, and advocating fairtrade. Although it's the second largest coffee-growing region in Peru, it is also the poorest. Through its focus and determination, the cooperative now enables smallholder farmers to produce extraordinary coffee in an environment perfectly suited for high-altitude specialty coffee, while also offering fair compensation for their work.

    Supporting delicious coffee and its community

    This coffee is delicious. The area of Cajamarca and the Andes is currently affected by serious drought. I hope these communities and their coffee produce keep flourishing as beautifully as the Guayacan.
