Rolando Lopez Cordova owns a 3.5-hectare farm with 1.5 hectares planted with Bourbon and Caturra variety coffee. He is a member of the cooperative association Lima Coffees, a fast-growing FTO-certified cooperative based out of Jaén, Cajamarca. Rolando is a competitive producer who focuses exclusively on specialty coffee, and he’s interested in making renovations to his farm in the coming years by planting new coffees and expanding his processing equipment, both wet processing and drying.

Coffees on Rolando’s farm are picked ripe and depulped either the same or the following day, then given 30 hours to ferment. They’re washed three times before being spread on a covered patio to dry for 20–30 days.
