The Cochalan lot is a blend of coffees from 12 different producers in the Jaen and San Ignacio provinces of Cajamarca in Northern Peru. The blend is named after a town that sits between the two provinces. Day lots from producers all over Cajamarca were purposefully blended together based on cup profile, one typical of the region, full of dried fruits, chocolate and a pronounced citric acidity.
Producers in Northern Peru have their own hand pulping machines and fermentation tanks where they process the coffee before drying it on their patio or raised beds. The main variety grown by these producers is caturra, with some still growing typica, pache and bourbon. Once dry, the coffee is delivered bag by bag to the warehouse in Jaen, where it is analysed, cupped and graded and producers paid in full the same day.
