Nestled in the Yanatile Valley, this coffee comes from Felipe Melo Mayo, a member of the Valle Inca Producer group. The group was founded by Prudencio Vargas Saenz who created the group after running a similar operation informally for a number of years. His goals for the group are to buy parchment coffee from local farmers, and reinvest the premiums he receives for their coffee into improving infrastructure and as a result, the quality of coffee for all growers in the group.Felipe himself was born in 1988 and has producing coffee for 12 years, two of which he has been part of Valle Inca. Born in Lacco Yavero, Cusco, he inherited the land from his parents to whom he owes his motivation to devote his work to the cultivation of coffee. Felipe cultivates Typica and Bourbon varieties, is focused on progressively raising the quality of his cup, and aims to produce an award winning coffee.
