Mexico, but in Peru

Bean Line

We cupped many (amazing) coffees on our last trip to Peru, but it wasn't always the case that we were able to meet the producer. Luckily for us, Ines Carrasco Carhuapoma of Finca Mexico was one we were fortunate enough to meet. Ines grew up in coffee and took over Finca Mexico just ten years ago, and in 2019 joined the Alpes Andinos group to help increase production and quality.

GGET Coffee Geography

Cajamarca Quality

Alpes Andinos formed in 2019 with just a couple dozen Cajamarca region farmers uniting together—including Ines. Today, the group has more than 100 member farmers focusing on producing specialty-grade coffees to Fairtrade and organic standards. We were moved by Ines' commitment to Finca Mexico and the desire to produce exceptional coffees at his farm in San Ignacio. This offering is washed and dry fermented for 30 hours, then dried on raised beds, all of which bring out the nuance of Ines’ lovely, high-elevation coffees.
