Juan Heredia Sanchez was the winner of the first ever Cup of Excellence in Peru. He owns two farms, one in the village of la Flor del Norte and another in Perlamayo, and each one is around 3 hectares each. This lot consists of Bourbon and Caturra and is pulped and fermented for 40 hours, then washed and dried for around 40 hours on covered raised beds, in an extension on his house!

Location & Farmer
Huabal is a district within the Jaén province of Cajamarca and is one of our strongest areas for members and quality. Huabal has a huge amount of potential for quality coffee, but due to very poor infrastructure many of the producers lack resources and knowledge to unlock that potential. Altitudes in the area range from 1200 to 2100masl, but most of the producers we work with are above 1800masl.
Huabal is made up of various villages, which are centres of coffee production and each producer belongs to a village. Since Huabal spans a couple of mountains the climate conditions and soils can vary considerably, with some areas having wet, humid conditions and red, African-like soils and others dry and hot. This all contributes to diverse and delicious cup profiles and some very complex coffees
