 We fell in love with this Peruvian because of its bright acidity, sweetness, and complexity. We wanted a coffee that would satisfy customers looking for distinctive flavours layering in the cup. This coffee has vibrant notes of orange blossom, mandarin and melon, with milk chocolate and caramel underneath and a honey-like sweetness.

La Huaca is a village in the district of Huabal that is home to over 30 coffee farming families. Most of the coffee is bought by intermediaries that control the supply chain and depress the price farmers are paid. The most vulnerable producers are those that are not part of an association and they represent 75% of producers in Northern Peru, including those in La Huaca. The importers of this coffee, Falcon Specialty, saw huge potential in the area. The growing conditions are ideal, there is a lot of pure Arabica planted, and the cup profile is distinctive. However, they had been unable to build relationships with farmers and impact the overall quality and traceability of the coffee being produced. So, they decided to set up a warehouse in Jaen and started buying coffee directly from producers. This shift in approach to sourcing has allowed Falcon to buy coffee directly from farmers and pay them a fair price with premiums well above the market price – in most cases double.
