Bernardo Rojas Colala has been growing coffee for 18 years in the San Ignacio district. The Cajamarca region lies in the north of Peru, nestled away in the high altitudes of the Andes mountain range. This was our first Peruvian coffee ever and we are proud to present such a distinct profile. Las Orquideas has rich flavours of peach, yellow plum, raisins and cacao nibs. Its high sweetness is supported by notes of maple syrup and orange marmalade. The mouthfeel is silky and the body is held together with good balance and structure.

San Ignacio is home to several Cup of Excellence finalists, and this has inspired Bernardo to focus on producing better coffees. One hectares of his small farm is dedicated to coffee growing, surrounded by extensive forest with great bio diversity. Bernardo is taking part in a government-led initiative to protect pristine forest in the region.

Ripe cherries were de-pulped and fermented under water for 18 hours. After a second soak, the coffees were dried for 15 days on raised African beds.
