 ABOUT  

Evaristo Palomino is a young producer from Cusco in south Perú, his farm is called "La Esperanza" and is situated on the south facing slope of the mountain called Inis Pata around an hour walk from the closest village called Pacayamba.

Evaristo is a partner in "Coop Agraria Cafetalera Incahausi" his farm is at a very high altitude at 2450 meters above sea level, that makes it one of the highest within the whole cooperative.

On the farm Evaristo produce a mixture of typica and bourbon on 1.75 hectares and he also has a separate plot of half hectares planted with Geisha.

Evaristo has been part of the cooperative for four years now and he decided to partner up with CACVI thanks to the great work that the coop manager and his team of specialists had been putting in place to enable local producer to process their coffees as specialty fetching different prices based on the quality of their production.

Along those incentives CACVI provide to their producers high quality technical advise in farm management and help them implement better farming practices tailored for each individual farm.

Evaristo from 2020 decide to join the organic program run by the farm to follow in the footsteps of his ancestors focusing all his attention in the coffee production, he decided to perpetrate good use inherited from the Incas tradition such as "el Ayni" that consist during the picking and processing of the coffee to receiving help from the other local producers, as well as offering his help to other producers to carry out the same task.

Another community tradition is called "Minka" is taking place during the off season where all the partners of the cooperative get together and work on cleaning, repairing, improving of the central mill as well as cleaning and maintaining the irrigation channels within farms.
