Estrella Divina is a co-operative project between 27 smallholder farmers in the San Ignacio region of Peru. The harvest in Peru is between May and October meaning that the green coffee arrives in the roastery generally in early December, this gives us time to profile the coffee and release it by around the end of the same month. Typically before starting to work with Peruvian coffee producers this was a bit of a ‘hungry gap’ when it came to fresh and in season coffee so we are eternally grateful for its presence in the roastery and on our offer list.
San Ignacio coffee growers work at very high altitudes, between 1600 and 2000 metres above sea level. The varieties that go into this community blend are Caturra, Catuai and Pache. Generally, a lot of the initial pulping and drying is done at the individual smallholder farms before the coffee is brought to the dry mill where it is sorted and graded, blended into quality grouped lots and generally readied for export.
