This particular community blend comes from the Flores family, which cultivates coffee near San Ignacio, in the Cajamaja region. The Flores family has grabbed hold of the saying, all for one and one for all. And at the heart of the family, David Flores Chilcon, is the head coffee musketeer.  He is all about supporting his family and they are all about supporting him.  Much of his passion started just a few years ago when he went with his father to sell coffee and saw a coffee laboratory for the first time.  He was hooked on the dream of producing a coffee that would stand out on the cupping table. After succeeding with his own micro-lot in 2021, he has dedicated his energy this year to helping a collective of 30 family members make a standout community blend. With David’s leadership, each family member uses their own micro-mill where carefully harvested cherries are fermented for 24 hours and then de-pulped, fermented again in the mucilage, washed to remove the mucilage, and then gently dried on raised beds over a period of 18 days.
