Finca Santa Josefa

Traudel Gerhmann Mick is an intense German-Peruvian coffee farmer who speaks several languages and is deeply passionate about experimentation with her coffee lots. With her husband, Juan Luis Vier, an engineer, and with Juan Atkins of Peru Global, she has pivoted from largely conventional coffee to a dedicated specialty focus that includes planting many new varieties and experimenting with anaerobic fermentation, among many other experiments. The farm is lush and beautiful, high in the mountains in Villa Rica.
