In the municipality of San Jose del Alto, in the province of Jaen up in the north of Peru is Ever Castillo’s farm, El Pino. He’s been producing coffee here for 12 years.

His parents are also coffee producers, and after a stint working on the coast he returned to the family farm and decided to start growing coffee. At first he helped his father but he was eventually able to buy a small piece of land to start his own coffee production.

Over time he reinvested to acquire land and increase the size of the farm to what it is today, and in improving the quality of his crop and drying stations. With the assistance of technicians from PECA (the Peru grower education arm of Caravela, our sourcing partner for this coffee) his crop has really gone from strength to strength. He’s now experimenting with new varietals, and is planting native trees to provide shade for the coffee crop.

Ever feels proud of what he has been able to achieve through coffee – he’s now known in the area for the quality of his crop.
