 From the farmer:  Valerio Almanza Ccahua

"The farm BUENA VISTA was aquired in the year 2004, this is a land donated to the community with an extension of 1 ha. After that I started to produce coffee from the varieties of BOURBON and TYPICA in the sector of AMAYBAMBA, district of INKAWASI, province of LA CONVENCION, región of CUSCO. After the yellow rust hit the coffee back in 2014 i felt obligated to renew all my coffee plants with a new variety. This coffee plants were donated to us by the cooperative and after training and supervisión in the field i am now producing quality coffee. With an extension of 1 ha. 

In the year 2018 I obtained the first harvest of my new coffee plants. I feel really grateful because due to this new variety i am overcoming all the difficult times, obtaining a competitive Price, increasing  the quality at the moment of cupping because it is specialty coffee and organic. Also my farm is developing  ecologic activities."
