Nestled in the Yanatile Valley in the Cusco region of south Peru is the Valle Inca Cooperative, which was created and run by Prudencio Vargas Saenze.  Prudencio, who lives in nearby Calca and brings the benefits of his former experience as an agricultural loan officer, buys parchment from farmers and reinvests premiums back into the community’s infrastructure to help them continue to improve quality.  After years of running Valle Inca informally, Prudencio decided to formalize the organization in order to gain organic certification, Fair Trade certification and the ability to export on his own.

Member-wise, Valle Inca is growing fast, currently with 101 farmers, and it’s no surprise that more and more farmers want to work with Valle Inca.  In the community, Prudencio is known for his trustworthiness, dedication, and drive to invest in his community, genuinely engaging their goals and concerns. He also pays higher prices than farmers had access to prior to the founding of Valle Inca, which has helped to improve quality as well as overall community health over time.

Leaders like Prudencio are rare, and the quality of connection between leadership and producer shines through in the cup.  The micro-lot we selected from Valle Inca is grown by Edy Robles Sosa.  We particularly love his coffee for its comforting, soothing profile with notes of red apple, tamarind, caramel, and milk chocolate.  Enjoy!
