There is a popular saying "Good things come in small packages" and this is true for Huabal, because although the producers do not have large coffee farms, they produce a coffee of the highest quality. This micro-lot is named “Aguas Negras/El Coronel” which refers to the black color of the waters of a local stream and to the last name of the family of producers whohave cultivated this coffee lot:

Elver Coronel Cervera, Manuel Villanueva Coronel, Agustina Villanueva Coronel, Maguito Villanueva Coronel, Vilma Fernandez García.

Almost all of them share a particular last name: Coronel. “Coronel” is a Spanish word which translated into English means colonel, a determined military rank. But, don’t be wrong, these producers do not have a serious-military attitude but quite the opposite. They are siblings, cousins and uncles who live in the same valley crossed by the black river mentioned before.

In the last years, the Cajamarca region has stood out for the quality of its coffees, and within it, the district of Huabal has played a leading role as it has been the cradle of high quality coffees that have been recognized nationally and internationally. This is due to the ideal geographical and climatic characteristics of Huabal and the dedication of its producers to grow coffees with great body, complexity and flavor.

Located in the north of Peru, Huabal rises between 1700 and 2000 meters above sea level, with maximum temperatures that oscillate between 12°C and 22°C. With a rugged geography, Huabal is home to cloudy forests that still prevail today and that play a great role providing water to nearby rivers and streams; and that are the habitat of flora and fauna species, such as monkeys, deer, birds and forest species of economic and conservation importance. All these climatic and geographical conditions make that Huabal coffee acquires great qualities.

It is thanks to your taste for rare specialty coffee that these farmers can make a significant increase on their ordinary earnings, which enables them to develop their land further.
