Peru Cafe Capili$15.00 per 12oz. bag
Santo Domingo de la Capilla — one of 15 districts in the province of Cutervo — has perfect conditions for outstanding coffees: high altitudes (coffee grows at up to 2,000 meters ASL) warm temperatures and abundant rain. The region also has abundant vegetation that the locals are serious about conserving. This has directly influenced la Capilla’s microclimate, which creates more precipitation than other coffee producing regions in Cajamarca and enormously benefits the producers.
After each picking, the cherry is pulped immediately and the parchment is fermented for approximately 12 hours and then washed and dried. While it is drying on patios it is turned several times.
