La Palestina is located near the village of El Triunfo in the San Jose de Alto district of Cajamarca, Peru. Previously cow pastures, Juan Alarcon Gonzales and Sobeida Coronel Martinez felt this land could have great potential for growing coffee, so in 1951, they purchased it and started to work in it. 


Over the years, around 1990, the baton passed on to their sons Juan, Jose, and Annibal. The three agreed they could take the production to the next level and soon introduced a few changes to all systems and facilities, with a particular focus on elevating the quality and reducing their environmental impact.


Slowly but surely, they earned a reputation in Peru’s specialty coffee growing scene—a fact materialised with a spot within the top 20 producers of the 2019 Peruvian Cup Of Excellence.
