Las Pirias is a village in the Chirinos district in Cajamarca. Producers in the area grow coffee between 1750 and 1900masl and the main varieties grown are caturra, bourbon and catimor. Coffee is generally picked and processed on the same day. Once processed the beans are fermented for 24-36 hours, with some producers extending that to 48 hours. It is then washed and dried for around two weeks on raised beds.
Cajamarca is a district in the province of San Ignacio and is one of the most well-known areas for quality coffee in Peru. There is a growing interest in specialty coffee and some of the biggest cooperatives in the area have been promoting quality for a number of years. A number of villages across Chirinos have ideal growing conditions for coffee, with altitudes above 1700masl, and many producers still have old pure Arabica varieties.
Why No. 1911? - It was the year that Machu Pichu was rediscovered
