Union y Fe
Union y Fe was founded in 2014 by 233 farmers in the La Coipa area of Cajamarca, around the town of San Ignacio. The aim was to find a market for their coffees, with a focus on both quality and sustainable relationships with partners. They constructed a mill and cupping lab in the town of San Ignacio at 1300 masl, where the climate is cool and less humid, making it ideal for storing coffee and preserving quality.
Each producer has their own small wet mill, with a depulper and concrete fermentation tank. Ripe cherries are hand-picked, pulped and dry fermented overnight for 12-18 hours. The coffee is then washed to remove the mucilage and moved to covered drying beds, where it dries for between 10 and 14 days.
