About the coffee
The La Requia coffee plantation is located in the middle of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Asháninka Yánesha, Villa Rica. In this coffee growing area, biodiversity, nature conservation and economic development of the resident coffee farms are the priority. Moreover, this initiative in particular is a proud women’s project!
This filter coffee from Peru is a washed Geisha coffee with a – typical for Geisha coffees – distinct flavor profile. Of note is the spring-like floral aroma of jasmine and violet, which is accompanied by warm notes of macadamia nut. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy.
About the farm
The Finca La Requia is managed by Tania Andrade Gabancho. It is a small farm where much emphasis is placed on quality, sustainability and holistic integration with the local community. At an altitude of 1600 m, the organically grown Arabica coffee varieties Typica, Caturra, Bourbon and Geisha are cultivated. Some of the lots have already won awards, thanks especially to the Geisha coffees with their remarkably complex flavor profiles. Interesting fact: The finca has a certificate for its deliberately “child-friendly” approach, because child labor is an absolute no-go at Tania Gabancho.
