Peru Capili Coffee
ABOUT THIS COFFEE:
Coffee producers in Santo Domingo de la Capilla are very serious about picking only the ripest cherries, so it can take up to five pickings to complete a harvest. After each picking, the cherry is pulped immediately and the parchment is fermented for approximately 12 hours and then washed and dried. While it’s drying on patios it’s turned several times, which helps to achieve the region’s beautiful shade of green.
ABOUT THE REGION:
The region also has abundant vegetation that the locals are serious about conserving. This has directly influenced la Capilla’s microclimate, which creates more precipitation than other coffee-producing regions
