Graciela Espinoza and her husband live in the Las Pirias village in Chirinos district where they own two hectares of land. Her farm is planted with a few different varieties, including typica, bourbon, caturra, catuai, mundo novo and catimor. All of the coffee is picked by the family and they are careful to be as selective as possible, only picking the ripest cherries. During the harvest season they will undertake twice as many passes through the farm than their neighbours.

Graciela’s coffees are dried in her parabolic drier on raised beds, which is great for minimising risks during natural processing. It protects the coffee from excessive moisture and facilitates more even and consistent drying. Each micro-lot is dried slowly for 35-45 days.
