FAMILY CUBAS & RIOJA | WASHED

FAMILY CUBAS & RIOJA | WASHED

In the last years, Cajamarca has stood out for the quality of its coffees, and within it, the district of Huabal has played a leading role as it has been the cradle of high quality coffees that have been recognized nationally and internationally. This could not be otherwise, because the geographical and climatic characteristics of Huabal and the dedication of its producers lend themselves to producing coffees with great body, complexity and flavor. Located in the north of Peru, Huabal rises between 1700 and 2000 meters above sea level, with maximum temperatures that oscillate between 12 °C and 22 ° C. With a rugged geography, Huabal is home to cloudy forests that still prevail today and that play a great role providing water to nearby rivers and streams; and that are the habitat of flora and fauna species, such as monkeys, deer, birds and forest species of economic and conservation importance. All these climatic and geographical conditions make that Huabal coffee acquires great qualities.

Within Huabal, we can find Perlamayo, a small village where small scale coffee farmers
have been establishing their lives and families. In Perlamayo, there are friendly families who work their farms helping each other when necessary. Cubas & Rioja are two of those families that, besides working together, have grown up knowing each other since childhood. Cubas and Rioja are families who have their origin in the same small village: Querocotillo located in the Cutervo district. They used to grow potatoes as their main economic activity, but both of them decided to move to Perlamayo looking for new lands and to grow coffee. Many years have passed since then and even though these families didn’t move at the same time, destiny joined them in the same community. Thanks to that, we were able to enjoy their coffee together and realized that they make a great match, this is how we created the Cubas & Rioja lot.
This coffee batch has been worked by some of the Cubas and Rioja siblings. They produce good coffee thanks to the knowledge that they inherited from their parents and grandparents that started growing coffee more than 25 years ago. In fact, when all of them were children, used to help their families on the coffee farm, this is the reason that they have expertise in coffee production and can achieve high quality.
