As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: concentrated volumes of coffee growing at and above 1700 masl, a prominence of Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra, and a movement among the producing population, away from subsidence-farming, and into seeing quality coffee production as a viable business.

Teofilo Bermeo is the owner of El Sauce, a 4 hectare farm named after the willow trees that grow there. It is located in San Pedro de Churuyacu, Tabacones, in the San Ignacio region of northern Peru. Don Teofilo has been producing coffee for almost 40 years and now, with the help of his sons, he is focusing on specialty coffee and improving the quality of his coffee through experimentation and diversification of varieties. Since diversifying, Teofilo is growing Caturra, Bourbon, Pache and Icatu.

As well as producing fantastic coffee, Don Teofilo also makes aguardiente - a home-distilled firewater. Due to the potency and flavour of his aguardiente, Don Teofilo has become famous throughout Cajamarca.
