Peru Pachamama Organic Coffee
A Gift from Mother Earth
Harvested to ensure biodiversity and harmony with nature, this superb dark roast is deserving of its namesake – the Quechua word for “Mother Earth.” It’s grown in the Quillabamba region in Peru, near the famous “lost city of the Incas,” Machu Picchu. It grows beneath the soft shade of native-species trees and is nourished by the region's own natural nutrients. This growing method preserves native flora and fauna, ensuring pure supplies of water and fertile soils for future generations of small-scale farmers. Café Britt Pachamama is certified organic by international organizations.
- 100% Arabica SHB (Strictly Hard Bean).
We’ve named this certified-organic blend after the Quechua word for "Earth Mother." It comes from Valle de la Convención a vast region north of Cusco and one of the world’s natural wonders. Its ancient towns of Inca Tambo and Vilcabamba date to the Inca Empire.
Coffee farms here cling to spectacular Andean hillsides and valleys some 1,800 to 2,000 meters (5,900 to 6,500 feet) above sea level. The tropical climate is ideal. The natural beauty celestial. And the ancient mystique of the Incas lingers.
Coffee growers here are independent and self sufficient. Distant from modern farming supplies, they cultivate their coffee using naturally organic traditions handed down by their ancestors. Over the years, they’ve become very expert in producing some very fine coffee.
We buy our Pachamama coffee from two small, certified-organic farmers’ cooperatives who collectively produce only about 150 tons per year. The coffee of this region has a true personality. It tends to be aromatic, with pleasant hints of fresh wood. You’ll note undertones of herbs and nuts in its robust flavor. This is a dark roast that would even surprise Peruvian coffee lovers.
