The coffee story

Finca Nelumbo is a 14 hectares farm owned by Ringo Contreras, a 45 years-old farmer from Yurinaki in the Chanchamayo Province, Junín, Peru. An electrical engineer by trade, Ringo returned to the countryside following a passion for coffee that was born when he was still a child. The farm belongs to his father, who founded it in 1970. Ringo has 1 brother and 2 sisters and they grow the Catuai, Limani and Marsellesa varieties at Nelumbo. Though the farm still produces a small amount of coffee (around of 100 bags of good quality), Ringo is working towards increasing his production for the coming harvests.

Ringo is offering this coffee with the support of Allpa Ruru, a small exporting company based in Lima. The coffee is certified organic.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
