North of Peru lies Lonya Grande - home to the Marañón River, the main contributory to the Amazon and the Kuelap fortress built by the Chachapoyas in the 6th century. The steep mountainsides create a microclimate abundant with orchids and home to the treasured Nacional cacao varietal. A perfect environment for great coffee. Aproccurma, founded in 2015, has since grown to 467 producers and spread across 867 hectares. The coffee is picked ripe, and after an initial flotation, passed through a de-pulping machine. Tanks are then used for fermentation and washing before a controlled drying process using wooden platforms and solar tents; all resulting in giving Aproccurma its distinct taste and renowned quality.
