Story

Benigno Rayme Grande and his wife have dedicated their efforts to growing and cultivating the red bourbon varietal on their four hectares of land at Finca Mesapata, Peru. Located in the Cusco region – renowned for its history and rich agricultural traditions – the farm is a culmination of their deep-rooted knowledge and experience in agriculture, passed down from their parents. They have created a space ideal for their coffee trees, with the combination of the land’s high altitude and climate results in bountiful harvests.

Our exporting partners in Peru, the Valleinca Association, introduced Benigno his wife’s work to us in 2023. They aid producers in technical assistance and processing knowledge so that producers all around the area can improve their cup qualities, which results in a better income. This is our first year working with their coffees, and we’re excited to share the results of their knowledge and hard work.

Origin

Cusco, Calca, Yanatile, Peru

Peru is known for its rich cultural history, incredible landscapes and world heritage sights. However, it is quickly becoming renowned for its cultivation of quality coffee, characterised by rich soils, microclimates and unique expressions of well-known varieties. 

The region of Cusco, located in the country’s south, has 53,580 coffee growing hectares producing just over 30,000 tonnes of coffee per year. There are many outstanding co-operatives and organisations that are responsible for this amount of coffee being produced in Cusco, as well as its growing popularity in the specialty coffee market. Coffees from Cusco have won many national and international awards, and a lot of the Cup of Excellence winners in Peru are from the region.

The Yanatile region of Cusco, in which Mesapata is located, lies on the Andes mountain range just north of the city of Cusco. The lush, diverse terrain lies between the Amazon and the lowland, coastal area of Peru –  optimal for production of high quality, specialty coffee.
