The coffee story

This coffee was short-listed by the Cup of Excellence (CoE) jury in Peru this year. It was cupped 4 times by an experienced team selected by Central de Café y Cacao, the organization behind the local CoE chapter, in Lima in preparation for the auction. This lot didn't make it to the international phase. However, this is an outstanding coffee amongst the best the country can offer! Ederson's coffee is being offered exclusively to roasters in Europe for direct sales for the first time this harvest. The initiative is being coordinated by Algrano in partnership with Central de Café y Cacao and Allpa Ruru with support from the Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE).

Farmer name: Ederson Melgarejo Huaman
Farm: Finca Nogalniyoc 
Location: Carmen Alto, Yanatile, Calca province, Cusco region 
Altitude: 1785 m.a.s.l.
Process: Washed 
This coffee is organically farmed. However, the certification is not available for the export.

The Nogalniyoc came to the Alagon family in 1967 as part of the agrarian reform which was taking place in Peru. Mr. Teofilo Alagon, from the District of Yanatile, Province of Calca, Department of Cusco, received the land to grow basic agricultural products. In 2000, 5 hectares were transferred as an inheritance to the Melgarejo Alagon family. Ederson introduced coffee to his plot back then, investing in varieties which yield good flavour profiles such as Typica, Bourbon and Geisha. They are currently being produced with better technology with the support of projects executed by the Municipality. Thanks to these initiatives, Ederson has been able to build his own small facilities to process coffee. He also has a polytunnel with raised beds and tanks for fermentation.
