Description

Experience notes of citrus fruits, pear, and brown sugar, with a medium smooth body. Melvin's coffee undergoes a distinctive natural process. After selective harvesting, the cherries are fermented in water for 68 hours, sealed in plastic tubs without oxygen to promote lactic fermentation, resulting in a creamy mouthfeel and body.

Post-fermentation, the coffee is dried in solar dryers for 30 days in a staggered manner to slowly develop the sugars. The process concludes when the coffee reaches a moisture level of 11-11.5%.

Producer Information

Melvin Campos Inga is a coffee producer from the village of Fátima, located in the Lonya Grande District of Utcubamba Province in the Amazonas Region. He is a member of the Norcafe cooperative, which operates in Lonya Grande and Jaen, Cajamarca.

Melvin has cultivated various coffee varietals over the years but now focuses primarily on Typica, a varietal he has known nearly his entire life.

Khipu first encountered Melvin’s coffee in August 2023 when they met his nephew, Roiber Beccera, in Lonya Grande. During a visit to Marcos Herrera and the Procecam team, we also met with Roiber at the Norcafe office. There, we tasted Melvin’s Typica, which impressed us with its boozy notes, lovely body, and smooth finish. We then asked Roiber to source more of his uncle’s coffee for us.
