Our Project D.I.R.E.C.T. program Peru El Limon is grown within one region, one co-op, one grower; its origin is the family farm of Lorenzo Cruz, one of the founding members of the Cooperativa Unión y Fé. In addition to using organic methods to grow bananas and yucca to feed his family, Lorenzo cultivates coffee plants alongside native trees for shade and soil fertility.
This particular crop from Caturra and Bourbon coffee trees was processed from harvested cherries into green beans entirely by Unión y Fé, and delivers a sweet, creamy flavor as well as high acidity that adds brightness. To retain the delicate flavors in our Peruvian beans, we mindfully light-roast this offering. Read about our Peru El Limon Direct Trade Relationship here.
