One interesting aspect of the specialty coffee industry is the growth in the number of microlots being grown by farmers. Both consumers and roasters alike are always looking for something different, giving producers the opportunity to increase their income. Maria Fernandez has taken this approach by planting the geisha varietal on her farm in Peru, with delicious results.

Expect floral tones at the front end, an orange mid range and a honeycomb sweetness as it cools.

El Chinchin

Our seasonal coffees each come with their own story, which is part of what makes them so special. Here we take a closer look at the producers behind this coffee.

The Farms

The Facts

Varietal: Geisha

Processing: Fully washed

Altitude: 1,850m

Harvesting

Social and Environmental Responsibility

Soil analysis is regularly conducted, with fertiliser applied in March and after the harvest in November. For fertiliser, Maria uses a mixture of compost and ‘guano de las Islas’, meaning guano from the islands. Located just off the coast of Peru are a collection of small islands, home to large sea bird populations. These birds produce large amounts of excrement, or, guano, which settles on the ground as a nutrient-rich top layer. Guano is collected on the island and transported to the mainland to be used as a fertiliser.
