A bit more information about the producer of this coffee: Founded in 1968, Chirinos is currently comprised of 728 producer members and some pioneer members can still be seen helping out around the cooperative. This cooperative stands out in their dedication to their members’ well-being through the diversification of their lands. Past and current projects include Sheep: Each producer receives two sheep. When they reproduce, the offspring are passed on to new producers, joining the coop; Guinea Pigs: Farmers are sold 1 male guinea pig and 6 female guinea pigs, and are trained on how to raise them. Guinea Pigs, known as “cuy” are consumed regularly as a source of protein; Trout: Over 40 producers have been trained to farm trout, and have their own man-made fresh water trout ponds on their land. Fish are raised without the use of antibiotics, chemicals or synthetic products. Several farmers have over 1,000 trout; Pigs: In the coming months, Chirinos will be implementing a pig pen at their cooperative. They hope to start with around 30 pigs, and train cooperative members how to raise and rear pigs; Compost and Fertilizer: The cooperative began their organic compost plant in 2009, and have built a remarkable facility. They currently produce two types of fertilizer, one with (and one without) micro-organisms. Depending on which season the fertilizer is to be applied, the quantity of added micro-elements is adjusted. The organic material for the base of the fertilizer comes from the pulp of coffee cherry, and is also mixed occasionally with hay. Chirinos can produce 4,000 bags of fertilizer from May to September (the months with pulp availability).
