We’re back in Peru this week, with another producer from Finca Churupampa.

David Nuñes owns and runs a small-scale coffee farm in the municipality of Chirinos in the region of San Ignacio, Cajamarca, and is one of the 30 coffee growing families members of Finca Churupampa.

David has been producing coffee for all his life, and three years ago he decided to start focusing on specialty coffee because he wanted to improve his life and the farm’s infrastructure.

Since then, he has being earning better incomes and he has been able to invest more money on his farm. He says that this way, he can manage to deliver a better product to the final consumer. He’s been so successful that in September 2017, he earned 5th place in a Specialty Coffee Contest in Chirinos.

Finca Churupampa started in 2011 with the objective of creating a model of sustainable, organic, integral, and productive coffee farms.

With the passing of years, they have gathered more coffee growing families who believe in this objective. Together they have educated their members to improve their practices, their drying processes, and infrastructure.

Created by the Instituto Agronomico do Campinas in Brasil, Catuai is a hybrid varietal between Caturra and Mundo Novo.

Caturra varietal

Considered to be one of the ‘genus’ varietals from which all other varietals have mutated from

The location

Coffee from Peru

Peru is well suited to coffee cultivation and production, given its high altitude and climate.


The Cajamarca region of Peru

The region is named after it’s capital city, Cajamarca. Comprises the northern area of Peru and the Peruvian Andes

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
