Rony Lavan is an ambitious and quality driven cupper who has spent his career trying to carve out better and bolder coffees from small producers in Peru. While the country is emerging as a specialty market after many years of focusing on bigger lots and certificatens, Rony’s passion is with identifying and developing th etop scores and the best cups.
As president of the young Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony has already established himself as standing at the fore of micro-lot quality coffees in Cajamarca. His first year with Lima Coffees he entered the national competition and won. With the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings.

This process works through diffusion instead of osmosisutilizing elements of water, temperature, and time. This maintains as many original coffee notes as possible, making the best decaf coffees.
