Through extensive cupping, Esbin’s farms, La Hondura & El Mango and Maria’s farm, Trapiche, have been singled out as some of the top lots from the region this year. Both Esbin and Maria’s farms are located in the town of La Naranja, around 2 hours from the association’s headquarters in Jaen; high in Peru’s Cajamarca department. Maria was born in Naranja and has lived there her whole life. Now aged 53, Maria has 8 children, 4 of whom still live with her. Maria first purchased her farm Trapiche 6 years ago. Totalling 2 hectares in size, Maria grows a mix of Bourbon, Typica and Pache. Both Esbin and Maria’s farms take their names from notable landmarks located on the plots. El Mango after the fruit trees on the farm, La Hondura, its bisecting shape and El Trapiche after the sugar mill that used to be located on the same plot. Like many other farms in the region, the names are symbolic, reflecting the distinguishing characteristics in the surrounding area.
