  • Carmen Rosa Huaman is a smallholder coffee farmer whose farm is located outside the town of La Libertad in the north of the San Martin region of Peru. A member of the Chope Women’s Group, Carmen is one of the 47 women that we partner with in Peru produce exceptional, high quality coffee using regenerative farming practices that care for the pristine Amazonian environment in this area of San Martin.

    This lot is a Mundo Nuovo microlot harvested by Carmen and her team of pickers in June 2021. Mundo Nuovo is an unusual variety to see on offer at present, particularly from a Peruvian farm. Mundo Nuovo originated as a natural cross between Typica and Bourbon that arose in Brazil in 1943. While this tall-tree variety has been planted in Peru, Honduras, Ecuador and other coffee origins, it is unusual to find an exceptionally well cultivate and processed version such as this lot from Carmen Rosa.

    The Chope Women’s Group, of which Carmen is a member, is an initiative that Dukes founded with organic pioneer Nelida Zurita in 2018 to support local women practicing regenerative organic production in the Moyobamba area of Peru. We please pleased to present microlots from the Chope Group for the fourth consecutive season.

    Agricultural practices as commonly distinguished as either “Organic” or “Conventional”. The concept of any kind of non-Organic farming as “conventional” – employing chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and other agricultural inputs throughout the lifecycle of the crop – is a misguided one. There is nothing conventional about using chemicals on the food crops that we consume! For the Peruvian farmers who have lived on the land that they farm for generations, the idea of applying chemical inputs is literally described as “burning the earth”.

    The farms in the San Martin region of Peru, located just on the southern border of the Amazon, are not industrialised agricultural projects. This is subsistence farming where the families live on small plots growing their own fruit, vegetables, raising animals and producing saleable crops such as coffee, cacao and timber. The environment is linked to the livelihoods and rich culture of these communities.
