About the Farm: The zapote is a fruit tree indigenous to Central and South America that produces both delicious fruits and delicate white flowers. The farm, La Flor del Zapote, took its name from these beautiful trees that surround it among the high mountains of the Peruvian jungle. The farm itself sits at an elevation of 1,700 meters nestled between the villages La Palma and Las Pirias, in the district of Chirinos and the province of San Ignacio in Peru. The coffee produced in this region is Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) and known for its high quality. All of the crops grown on this farm are produced using only organic fertilizers and the family leverages shade coverage provided by the surrounding fruit trees, and wild flowers.

La Flor del Zapote is now four decades old and run by Rony Lavan Guerrero and his family of 8. Everyone on the farm works extremely hard, day after day, to grow and harvest high-quality coffee. The production is modest at around 200-250 qq per year, managed mainly by the family with the help of 5-7 local workers hired during the harvest season. The farm is located between the villages of La Palma and Las Pirias, in the district of Chirinos and the Cajamarca department in Peru. The community is home to around 2,000 inhabitants with the children of the families attending La Palma school which provides education up to 8th grade for around 180 students.
