The Story

Situated at high altitude in the Peruvian region of Cajamarca is the town of Barro Negro. Here three neighbouring farmers have combined their harvest capacity to showcase a unique micro-region that is committed to sustainable and organic coffee production.


Producers Maria Nieves Tantalean, Evaristo Neira & Wilmer Neira each preside over about 1 hectare of land with sustenance fruit trees interspersed with their Caturra, Typica and Bourbon coffee trees. All three are members of the Alpes Andinos Association, a collective of coffee growers promoting higher quality, sustainable productivity and community empowerment. Only organic fertilizer is used and comes from coastal Peru where large sea bird populations excrete a rich combination of nutrients that works perfectly for coffee growth. During harvest cherries are floated, sorted and washed using crisp water from the nearby El Mirador Mountain.
