Peruvian Coffee Day: Coffee shops as oases to switch off from everyday life | Oriunda Cafeteria | Business

Currently, Peruvian coffee consumption is around 1.6 kg per person per year, which is a significant increase from the previous figure of around 0.9 kg. This increase is due to the joint promotion of this gram by the public and private sectors, as well as the determination of young entrepreneurs who have turned their love for the beverage into a business opportunity.

Franshesca del Castillo, founder of Oriunda specialty coffee and tea (Av. Ricardo Palma 240) is one of those young people whose passion for this drink led her to open a unique space for coffee lovers in the districts of Surquillo and Miraflores.

The Oriunda Cafeteria, founded in January 2020, was founded amid the challenges of the pandemic. “We inaugurated on January 11 and on March 16 we were surprised by the pandemic,” says Franshesca. Despite these circumstances, she stuck to the vision of creating a place where people can break out of routine, relive their memories and stimulate their imaginations.

Franshesca’s decision to immerse himself in the world of coffee arose from the personal experience of enjoying this drink in the company of friends. This routine inspired her to create a place where people can disconnect and reconnect while reminiscing about beautiful moments from their childhood. This gave rise to the name “Oriunda”, which means “coming from somewhere”.

Oriunda originally worked with coffee from Cajamarca, Cusco and Villa Rica. However, during the pandemic, they focused on coffee profiles from microlots in the Rodríguez de Mendoza province (Amazon). The quality of the beans is crucial. To ensure this, a close relationship with the coffee farmers has been established, which ensures a controlled production process from harvest to roasting.

The commitment to quality is reflected in the choice of beans, the roasting process and the choice of profiles that enhance the aromatic and organoleptic notes of Peruvian coffee, says Franshesca.

For coffee lovers and those seeking an authentic Lima experience, Oriunda offers a place where Peruvian coffee comes to life, providing a journey through the senses and memories. As part of Peruvian Coffee Day celebrations, this Friday, August 25th, the cafeteria is offering a free glass of coffee with the purchase of desserts and sandwiches.
