The San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru coffee story:
This Peruvian coffee was founded by Rony Guerrero in 2016. With a focus on cup quality over commercial production, Rony hand-selected producers with potential and chose yellow and red caturra and typica from five of them.
The five producers who made the cut are Antonio, Jacinto Jora Willaacero, Alexander Flores, Rosendo Cofiria and Gevaro Cruz. All are based near Cajamarca, a city in Peru's Northern Highlands in the Andes Mountains. This particular area is renowned for its quality; coffee grown at this high altitude produces a uniquely refreshing cup.
San Ignacio coffee is processed in the traditional washed style, with long dry fermentation. To preserve its quality, Rony stores it in grain pro bags. And to avoid the risk of fading, he never buys anything with a moisture content over 11%.
When enjoying San Ignacio coffee, expect a full-bodied, rich espresso with good complexity to enrich your tastebuds.
