Peru, Laura Paye

TASTES LIKE Toffee Apple, Jasmine, Honeydew & Grape
PROFILE Floral & Delicate


On Finca Santa Yamilet, Laura works with her husband Genaro Quispe Cahuana to manage the workload. Genaro handles fertilisation, harvest and storing the coffees, with Laura in charge of post harvest processing, sales and finance.

They’ve been processing coffee for seven years, and began specialty production in 2016, through improvements on the post harvest processing, use of organic fertilisation and separation of the lots. Laura’s personal challenge is to produce the best coffee in her region,  Puno in Southern Peru. They’d like to experiment with other varieties, improve the wet mill and build a bigger compost plant for a greater fertilization program. She and a few of her neighbours produce a variety they call Bourbon Grande as the plants appearance is similar to Bourbon. However, after local analysis, the bean size is closer to Pacamara or Maracaturra and the plants themselves are different in appearance to Bourbon. The leaves are currently being analysed at the World Coffee Research Centre so the variety is currently a genetic mystery!
