Peru - Edilberto Torres Sanchez - Natural - Filter
As a guide, expect mouthful of crazy tropical fruit juice. This coffee is all about rich and ripe tropical fruits like mango, guava and even star fruit. It's got a rich and syrupy mouthfeel supported by a pleasant background acidity. This coffee is perfect for the summer and will excel served either hot or cold. Supply is very limited - be warned!

The farm / farmer:
Edilberto Torres Sanchez is a second generation coffee producer from San Antonio, Huabal. Edilberto grows catuai and Castillo varieties on his farm which sits at an altitude of 1600masl. Edilberto has started to process naturals this year after some successful trials.
This lot is a natural process. In this instance (as natural processes vary hugely in actual detail), the ripe cherries are dried on raised beds for 25 to 30 days to achieve even drying and adequate levels of moisture.
The region / farming:
Huabal Huabal is a district within the Jaén province of Cajamarca and is one of the 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 2100 masl.
Many producers in Huabal had been regenerating their farms with Catimores, which had been promoted by the government and multinational buyers, and in some altitude ranges have given great results and with good management produce decent cup quality, but in the higher altitudes rarely produce much and the quality is poor.
Now with the premiums that they’re receiving for quality, more and more producers are re-planting caturra, bourbon and Catuai, which, with good management and fertilisation can yield higher and produce much better quality coffee. 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.
Huabal Huabal is a district within the Jaén province, one of 13 provinces of the Cajamarca region in Peru. It sits in the far North of the country, which is mainly mountainous terrain with high altitudes.
