Description

In the heart of Peru’s La Convencion Valley, The Huadquiña Group is found in Santa Teresa, which sits at the base of the Templo de La Luna on the Urubamba river, all within the larger region of Cusco. Coffees from La Convencion are superb, heavy and creamy with a profound sweetness of fig, muscovado, brulee’d sugar, and amber honey with yellow fruit notes of mango, peach, and yellow plum. Huadquiña member Ignacio Guevara Perez grows Caturra and Typica on his farm Nueva Esperanza; producing a chocolatey and balanced cup with the texture of sweet cream and juicy notes of nectarine.

Background

30 minutes from Quillabamba, a major coffee trading hub, Huadquiña has actually been in operation since 1964, but the quality potential of the region went unrealized as a large cooperative union ruled the larger Cusco region for decades with an iron fist, making the trade channels too opaque and choppy to navigate with any success. In 2015, the organization disbanded, and Cusco essentially became a brand new producing origin in its own right. La Convencion is a perfect example of Peru’s hidden gems; it’s far off the beaten path, a full 12 hour drive from town, crossing many a pass at 12,000 feet. With bourbon, typica, and caturra comprising the majority of the variety landscape and altitudes of 1750-2200 masl, the quality potential is huge and The Huadquiña Group has made amazing strides in stewarding the region’s growth and return for quality focused producers.
