The coffee story

Quanda represents the coffee from the province of San Ignacio is located in the extreme North of Cajamarca. The area's geography is dominated by the Andean highlands or moorlands of the Western Mountain range between the Blanco and Tabaconas rivers, and the tropical forest or yunga. It's a mountainous area marked by almost constant drizzle and clouds.

The province of San Ignacio is one of the richest provinces for coffee producing and this coffee comes from one of its 7 districts called San José de Lourdes. The farms are surrounded by outstanding hills such as El Parco, Picorana and the Quanda ravine. Quanda is the name of the junction of two rivers from the Picorana peak. It represents purity and the sweetness born in the heights of the mountain.

About Norcafe
Founded in 2015 by the young sons of coffee producers of the Amazonas region, Norcafe represents 285 smallholders with the objective to find new markets for their coffees and secure good prices in order to improve the community's livelihoods.
The association markets coffee for a large number of young families who have inherited their passion for coffee from their parents and decided to follow in their footsteps. 

With the support of Norcafe, they have started to improve their practices, increasing the average fermentation period for cherries before washing and drying the best coffees slowly to ensure consistency.  Norcafe also provides pre-harvest assistance in weeding, selective pruning, pest and disease control, fertilisations, planting of living barriers and water care with environmentally friendly practices.
