About Teodulo Cordova Cruz

In Northern Peru near the Ecuador border lies the small town called Pueblo Libre.
Nestled within the center of Namballe district, it’s in the San Ignacio province within the larger Cajamarca region.

This area is of vital importance since it’s part of the buffer zone surrounding the Tabaconas Namballe National Sanctuary. This sanctuary preserves a unique and rare ecosystem in Peru: the páramo.

Teodulo Cordova is one of our top producer partners in this area. Born in the coffee producing town of Pueblo Libre, his grandparents came from the high Andes of Huancabamba (Piura region) seeking more fertile lands. He’s been cultivating coffee for over 20 years. The farm encompasses 2 hectares, all dedicated to coffee and subsistence crops like bananas and yucca for his family’s daily usage.

He intersperses Caturra, Bourbon and Pache varieties among shade trees include Albizia and Pacay. After processing, he loads parchment onto mules to be delivered to the nearest access road. Teodulo is a passionate coffee producer and wishes to obtain national and international recognition in the future.

The name of his farm “El Palto” is because when he first bought the land there were only avocado trees everywhere.

In this area coffee production coexists in total balance with the preservation of the ecosystem. The natural result is a sustainable and excellent quality coffee.
