Ovidio is a coffee farmer in the community of Siete Estrellas (Seven Stars), which has been a partner of Invalsa's for over ten years. 2016 is the first year that we are offering a micro-lot (85+ points) from Ovidio. This coffee was produced under organic conditions (no chemical fertilizers or pesticides used) but is not certified organic.
Ovidio is married to Lidia Huanca. They have three children; two boys and a girl. The whole family works on their farm producing specialty coffee. They have been producing coffee since 1997.
Because it is past crop (2015/16) we are offering with a 25% discount from the current crop. Because it is vacuum packed at origin, still cups very well.
