Marcial Olivera Diaz is the owner of 4 hectares of land in the Nuevo Trujillo village in San Jose de Lourdes. Nuevo Trujillo is one of the larger villages in San Jose de Lourdes and produces some of the best coffees in the area, with a distinctive cup profile, citrusy and buttery.
Marcial grows caturra, bourbon and castillo varieties, with caturra making up the majority of the mix. Marcial hires pickers, all of whom live in Nuevo Trujillo, to selectively pick coffee cherries at his farm. Once picked, the coffee is washed and floated before being pulped and fermented for 24 hours. Marcial then dries the coffee under shade in a wooden drier built as an extention of his house.
2022 is our first year offering this coffee, Peru Marcial Olivera Diaz. Marcial, and other farmers alongside him, are growing excellent coffees there, representing the rich beauty of Peru, and we're excited to showcase it here.
