The Lopez brothers, Cesar and Rolando, farm coffee deep in the hills of Ihuamaca, Cajamarca, Peru. The brothers grow a wild array of beautiful flowers alongside the coffee plants at a high elevation of 1930 masl. Ihuamaca is a long drive from the nearest city, but the rugged mountains provide ideal coffee growing conditions. The cherries are removed the day after picking to be fermented in a tub for up to 20 hours. After fermentation, the seeds are washed to remove the mucilage before the final drying stage on raised beds.
