Falcon Speciality are our partners in Jaen, they have been working directly with farmers in this area of Peru for several years, allowing for greater control and improvement on quality. Full financial traceability helps us to pay higher prices for the top quality coffees, ensuring producers receive a fair price that is significantly above the market price.
Falcon's Simon Brown is now based full-time in Jaen, where Falcon have an incredible set up including a purpose-built warehouse, complete with in-house cupping lab, an agronomist, and a Quality Control team.
Simon has been instrumental in working with producers to improve processing methods and this year’s lots are a real triumph. Despite a difficult year due to the pandemic, the quality from the 2020 harvest has been fantastic and we are delighted to showcase the coffee from La Huaca and celebrate the growers’ achievements on an international stage.
