El Roble is coffee grown by Nima Juarez Aleydy Yessenia. Nima’s farm is in the La Coipa district, part of the famous San Ignacio province, near Peru’s northern border with Ecuador. Nima has almost 5 hectares total across three combined parcels: El Roble, La Quebrada, and El Mango. She lives on the farm with her husband, Keny Yajalwanca Garcia. Together they cultivate coffee first and foremost, but also guava, plantains, and livestock like hens and pigs.
The bulk of coffee production in Peru comes from small farms owned and is managed by people who have for many years followed organic farm management practice attuned to their cultural connection with the land. Producers typically cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, fruits and vegetables. Small producers are often very careful about picking and sorting their cherries prior to depulping, fermenting, washing, and drying the coffee, all on personal equipment and on personal property. While producers design farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their varying needs, they also need a strong business alliance to bring their coffee to the international market and earn fair prices, regardless if the coffees are blended or sold independently.
Nima and her husband employ a few pickers during harvest months and oversee all processing themselves on their property. Coffee is depulped with a motorized pulping machine and fermented in a concrete tank. After fermentation is complete, parchment is washed again with clean water and moved to dry on a covered patio.
Nima and her family pay close attention to the soil and fertilizers used on their farm to make sure they're growing the best product possible.

Ruby never disappoints and is one of my go to roasters for coffee ordering, as well as recommendations for others
Can't say enough good things about your coffees! The beans are always so easy to work with. They make for easy brewing and very flavorful cups. I'm a huge fan and loyal customer for the future!
I have liked every coffee that I've had from Ruby, and I like how Ruby sources from farms that focus on sustainability.
I love the variety of flavors that are presented from different areas of the world.
I have, for years, received a rotating cast of delicious coffees each month. Each coffee has its own color and profile. I embrace the delicious variety and couldn’t choose a single favorite.
The roast style offers great blends that appeal to all, but also offers exotic single-origin beans directly from specific farms.
Thank you for always providing fantastic coffee. It is so satisfying knowing that each morning I can enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee made by good people who know good people.
