In the Qechua language of the Peruvian Andes, “Minca” refers to a particular camaraderie between farmers. While producers will hire help for the harvest, during the year they depend on their neighbors. Groups will travel from farm to farm, accomplishing what needs to be done before moving on to the next farm. This idea of caring for the whole — this social bond — is known as Minca.
Located between the Andes Mountains and the rainforest, the Satipo region is also known as the ceja de selva, or “jungle entrance.” It’s a region rich in biodiversity and with very asymmetrical topography, which creates different types of airflows that help coffee trees to flourish. The result is this excellent lot of beans, which boasts a heavy body, medium acidity, and tasting notes that resemble a rich chocolate candy bar!
