More Info from the farm:
Altitude: 1850 MASL
Wilmer Martinez Terrones owns two hectares of coffee in the Shumbana village in Santa Rosa de la Yunga. The farm sits at 1850masl and is planted with caturra, typica and pache. Wilmer picks and processes his coffee himself and dries it on a lined patio for 10 days before delivering it to the Falcon Coffees warehouse in Jaén.
Santa Rosa de la Yunga
Santa Rosa de la Yunga belongs to the Jaén province in the region of Cajamarca. Santa Rosa is fairly isolated since it is located quite far from the city of Jaén and has poor roads and infrastructure. This isolation has meant that for many years the area has been dominated by local aggregators and the price for coffee has been consistently low, unlike some other areas of Jaen and San Ignacio which had at least seen a rise in the local market prices due to the huge FTO market. In recent years, however, with the emergence of the specialty industry there has been a growing interest in high altitude areas, and Santa Rosa is blessed with high altitude and ideal growing conditions. Although it is still very underexplored, we have managed to form relationships with a group of 21 farmers who have been delivering very nice coffee and gradually improving as they become more aware of the quality premiums and attend training sessions.
