The San Ignacio Province sits at the top of the Cajamarca region in Northern Perú where the Rio Canchis splits the country from Ecuador. Here the western and eastern mountain ranges of the Andes meet to form microclimates in the buttresses and valleys that descend from the mountains to the Amazon basin. The farms are located in the buffer zones of a protected natural area, and have seen spectacled bears, cock-of-the-rocks, jaguars and peccaries within their boundaries. This means working with an organic methodology and certification is a strategic point because through these standards, a culture of protection of wildlife and species in danger of extension is encouraged and created.
This coffee is named after the same spectacled bear which frequents the area called El Chaupe. It helps pollinate plants by carrying the pollen in its thick hair, as well as opening spaces in the tree canopy which allows light for germination and growth of species in the lower forest. Grown by two female members from Frontera San Ignacio Cooperative; Magdalena Lopez and Fredesvinda Granda,
