Percy Pintado is a third-generation coffee producer, based in the charming municipality of Alto Ihuamaca, located in the San Ignacio district of Peru. He has been managing his own 5-hectare farm, where his three children now also work. Various coffee varieties, including Bourbon, Caturra, Catimor, and a small plot of Gesha are grown on his land. During the harvest season, five employees join the team to assist with the picking. The Geisha cultivated by Percy perfectly embodies the harmonious blend of the classic profile of this coffee variety and the unique terroir of northern Peru where it thrives.
For the past seven years, Percy has taken on the role of leader within the Alto Ihuamaca committee of Origin Coffee Lab's educational program. Origin Coffee Lab is a Peruvian coffee export company in partnership with our importer, Apex Coffee Imports. Producers participating in their program receive training in good agricultural practices, quality assessments of their coffee, and easier access to the market. Furthermore, Origin Coffee Lab actively invests in social and environmental initiatives and innovative sustainability practices, placing producers at the heart of their operations.
