This lovely Fully Washed Peru is aptly named, 'Naranja' means 'orange' in Spanish. There is a sweet candied orange character with a crisp acidity and smooth full mouthfeel. Gorgeous long-brewed coffee and bright as an espresso. What you'd expect from a high grown, excellent Peruvian coffee.
Aliz Garcia lives in the town of Barrios Altos, La Coipa, around 2 hours from Jaen, high in Peru's Cajamarca department. Aliz has 4 younger children and 2 farms, La Naranja & El Chorro, both located at 1800m.a.s.l. Both farms were originally inherited containing local varieties Red Caturra and Typica, as well as a new variety known as La Marga.
Both of Aliz's farms take their names from notable landmarks located on the plots. Naranja is named after the farm's orange trees and El Chorro after the small river located close to the farm. Like many other farms in the region, the name is symbolic, reflecting the distinguishing characteristics in the surrounding area. Coffee production is Aliz's only means of income, with any fruit trees or other produce grown reserved only for personal consumption.
