Deiner's farm is located in the village of el Diamante, Northern Peru. From his two hectares of land, Deiner and his brothers hand-pick their cherries from their 8,000 plants. These cherries are then delivered to Deiner’s neighbour, Roger Chilcon Flores, who assists with the processing (in this case, washed).
Coffee from this region has been hard to get to the specialty market, due to poor infrastructure and lack of training amongst farmers. This lot from Deiner and his brothers marks a change in the way coffee is produced and traded in this area of Peru, and we are glad to be able to support a more direct and sustainable approach, with results that taste complex and sweet.

Notes from the team:
There are some great things going on in Peru at the moment. We work with importers who are setting up a revolutionary supply chain model, with Peru as the breeding ground. The plan for this 'Blueprint Project' is to enable each stage of the supply chain to be logged, so that coffee can be traded with absolute transparency.
It's great to know that not only can we enjoy this delightful coffee, but we can be a part of something so groundbreaking.
