Susana Hurtado Inga is a coffee producer who lives in San Jose de Lourdes, a small district in the province of San Ignacio in Peru. Susana owns around 1.5 hectares of land planted with caturra coffee trees (a natural mutation of the very well known Bourbon variety).
The altitude at the farm ranges from 1800 to 1900masl and the coffee grows under shade from banana and some native fruit trees. Susana picks all the coffee herself and with the help of her family, who also own coffee farms in the area. Since Susana doesn’t have adequate space or infrastructure to dry her coffee after washing, she dries it at a neighbouring farm owned by Roger Chilcon Flores.
