The coffee story

La Perla is a 10 hectares farm located in the Valley of the Satinaki River. It is part of a small community called Alto La Florida which is part of the Chanchamayo province in the centre of Peru. The farm’s altitude ranges from 1210 m to 1400 m and the plot sits in the midst of the highland rain forest. Roberto Boado, the owner, inherited La Perla from his father, who received the land in 1970 from the Peruvian government to produce coffee. Boado's coffee is being offered by Allpa Ruru, a small exporting company based in Lima.

“I am producing my coffee with the help of my family and my neighbours. My father started as a worker for large coffee farmers in the region. That was how he learned about coffee growing. We have dedicated all our efforts, know-how and energy to growing very good coffee. Last year I started drying my coffee at the farm instead of down in the valley to improve my quality. Following my neighbours’ steps I will start to dry coffee husk and offer this as a caffeinated tea to have an additional income from the same cherries I harvest” - Roberto Boado

The process

We rinse the cherries in clean water and select the best ones. Then we depulp without water, leave the cherries to ferment for 30 hours, wash them, sort them again and dry them on raised pallets.

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.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
