Day 17 - Peru | Bosque Verdes

Zest Specialty Coffee Roasters

It's no secret that Zest has a soft spot for Peru and its unique coffee produce. In particular, our friends from Bosque Verdes, Northern Peru, hold a special place in our hearts. After working directly with this community of 240+ family farms for more than three years, we've been able to develop some very special coffees and some even more special friends. Previous years have seen members from our team personally visit the farm and achieve some amazing things by experimenting with coffee processing techniques. A particular lot that comes to mind was a natural process 90-hour low oxygen fermentation lot that scored a whopping 89 points! Unfortunately due to COVID, we have been unable to visit the farm ourselves, so we've had to take a more 'virtual' approach, guiding the participating farmers through the steps to process and produce what we hope to be another season of high scoring, delicious micro-lots!

It's been a particularly tumultuous time for the coffee industry and none have been left more exposed than the coffee farming community. So we thought it fit to check in with our friends from Bosque Verdes. As cheerful as ever, the team caught up with us to share the difficulties surrounding these past two harvests and the opportunities that they hope to see open up in the future. Alfredo, the Head Environmental Engineer from Bosque Verdes, was kind enough to answer some of our questions, and give us a real insight as to what has been going on in the coffee world in Peru.
