The tiny hamlet of El Horcon is located in San Ignacio District, Cajamarca, a region known for producing specialty grade coffee. With less than 20 families in town, they've banded together as one part of a coffee farmer's alliance called "Finca Santuario". The goal of this association is to aggregate resources in order to not only gain the small farmer transparent access to the global market, but also work as a collective to increase their coffee's value by planting cultivars with cup quality in mind, and improve harvest techniques as well as processing and drying conditions. Our roast has cocoa flavor with a bittersweet backdrop and roasted nut tones. The cool cup tastes a bit like chocolate-peanut butter cookies!

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
