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.
