A note from our supplier, Nordic Approach:
These coffees are from a small operation of the Alberca family. Maria and her 3 sons all have neighbouring farms, and they all deliver amazing qualities. The work together on the management on farm practices and post harvest processing. Maria’s farm, El Pajuro has 1 hectare planted with coffee, mainly Caturra and Pache. It is located at 1830 masl in Sport Piura.
Maria Esmilda and her sons are members of Cedros Cooperative. The coop was established in 2013, but it has just recently started to focus on quality and sustainability. Maria is one of a few producers that has invested in producing higher qualities, and her results are outstanding. Born in the San Luis de Lucma District, Cutervo, in 1954, Maria completed her primary education at Daniel Alcides Carrión Elementary School in San Luis de Lucma. She left formal schooling in order to support her parents in the field who were cattle and potato farmers. At the age of 22, she left her parents’ home to marry her “Prince Charming”, Ezequiel Chinguel. They were looking for a new life when she decided to dedicate herself to coffee, that’s when they moved to live in Sport Piura, in the district of Huabal. In 2017 Maria and her sons joined the Cooperativa de Servicios Multiples Cedros.
Their farms are located in a high altitude area with a favourable climate. Over time, they have implemented and improved their wet processing, drying methods as well as introducing various varieties of coffee which has led her to be a successful producer doing very high-quality coffees that currently cup 87 and up.
Cooperativa de Servicios Múltiples Cedros Café (Cedros) was created on May 10th, 2013. It is located in the Cajamarca Region of Northern Peru. The cooperative is fairly small with about 300 members, and was established in order to generate greater representation and participation among its members, to provide them with better access to public and private funding and to develop niche markets and become an active participant in the coffee social movement both at national and international levels. Cedros incentivises its members by paying premiums for cup quality, providing farm infrastructure such as solar dryers, implementing post harvest processing equipment like pulpers and fermentation tanks, and many other initiatives to improve cup quality. This assistance with infrastructure is accompanied by practical training.
