Producer César Callo Yupanqui cultivates coffee at Finca Umapata in Calca, Cusco, Peru. His farm is 5.5 hectares and sits at 2,180 meters above sea level. The high altitude creates warm, sunny days and cool nights that help nurture sweet, dense cherries. César handpicks ripe, red cherry and processes it on his farm. He pulps cherry on an eco-pulper and ferments it in water for 36 to 46 hours. Following fermentation, he washes parchment in clean water and lays it to dry in parabolic dryers. César rakes parchment frequently to ensure even drying; it takes approximately 15 to 20 days for parchment to dry. Once dry, parchment is rested on his farm for 10 days and then moved to the Valle del Inca cooperative warehouses for 30 days before being transported to the dry mill and prepared for export.
