Farm level story
Nayra Julca Milsar has a 2-hectare coffee farm called El Shipal, where Caturra variety coffee is planted. The farm has a cover of shade and, like many farms that are part of the network of smallholder members of Lima Coffees cooperative, Nayra's farm is certified organic.
Coffee on El Shipal is picked ripe and depulped the same or the following day, then fermented for about 20 hours in open-air tanks. After being washed three times, it's dried on raised beds or in parabolic dryers; the drying takes about 15–20 days to complete.
