This lot is a blend of day lots from producers San Ignacio district, which in this case are only from the municipality of Chirinos. San Ignacio is made up by three areas, Chirinos, San José de Lourdes and Tabaconas.
Producers in the area pick and process their coffee themselves and usually dry the coffee on a lined patio. Coffee is generally fermented there for 24 – 36 hours and the main varieties grow are red and yellow caturra, castillo and typica with some ancient bourbon plants scattered almost at random in most of the farms.
The producers that are represented in this blend are some of the most promising and open-minded producers of the area. With high altitudes and ideal growing conditions the region is truly starting to showcase much of the hidden potential that holds.
