Finca Churupampa is a very progressive coffee farm in Chirinos, Cajamarca, Peru. The Tocto brothers took over the farm’s operations from their parents several years ago and are transforming it into a model for economically and environmentally sustainable coffee production. In addition to selling coffee from their own farm, the Toctos provide export and marketing services for 215 neighboring farmers. Finca Churupampa has a training center that is open to the entire community, and works with farmers to improve their production practices to break a cycle of poverty that has entrapped farmers in the region for many years. Churupampa is highly focused on the welfare of both the coffee producers and the environment. They provide farmers with opportunities to improve production practices, focus on organic farming, and utilize a soil management program which produces fertilizers and compost using a diverse selection of microorganisms gathered from the surrounding forest.

The Peru Churupampa is a delightfully fascinating coffee. It sits right at the junction of traditional and contemporary, in regards to flavor. In its lighter iterations, it exhibits vibrant notes of Madagascar vanilla and crisp pear, with a juicy body and balanced acidity. Its darker interpretations possess a wealth of caramelized sweetness, akin to crème brûlée and turbinado sugar. This coffee is at its best as a sweet and flavorful batch brew, or a rich and velvety shot of espresso. Truly a remarkable coffee that is well-suited to a variety of roast levels and brew methods.
