From the importer, Cafe Imports:

"Peru is a shining example of progress and development through relationships. In 2014, we met Rony Lavan, a cupper at a cooperative in the Cajamarca region of Peru. After spending some time working alongside him, we started talking about sourcing smaller, higher quality, and more traceable offerings together. Since he founded Lima Coffees in 2017, we have been sourcing and developing the majority of our Peruvian coffees alongside his team, spending time in Jaen cupping and approving coffees while visiting farms and connecting with the many fantastic producers that Lima Coffees represents. 

"Rony is an ambitious and quality-driven cupper who has spent his career trying to carve out better and bolder coffees from small producers in Peru. While the country is emerging as a specialty market after many years of focusing on bigger lots and certifications, Rony's passion is for identifying and developing the top scores and the best cups.

"As president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony has already established himself as standing at the fore of quality coffees in Cajamarca. His first year with Lima Coffees, he entered the national competition and won; with the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings. Rony and his coffees will be the ones to watch."

The chemical-free Mountain Water Process involves soaking green coffee in fresh mountain water until it reaches a saturation level that allows the dissolvable solids, including caffeine, to be extracted. The water then passes through carbon filters, removing the caffeine before being returned to the tank. Using pressure, the coffee oils are reintroduced to the green coffee, leaving it around 98% caffeine-free.
