This region boasts excellent fertile ground with perfect coffee growing conditions. Scoring between 82 and 88 the district has ample coffee to offer a variety of roasters needs.
The coffee of this valley has a classic Peru good body with Cacao flavour yet the hints of nutty syrup and liquorice separate this coffee from that found at lower altitudes.
The varieties most common to the region are Caturra and Pache.
As a general rule with smallholdings, each producer harvests around 750-1500kg a year depending on the farm size, the weather and the care each farmer has taken to manage their plot.
The coffee is washed, due to the amply spring waters. Later the parchment is patio dried. The cascara is later used as fertiliser. The coffee originates from farms that have not been contaminated with pesticides and phosphates.
