There are many in our St. Louis Roastery that eagerly await the annual return of Peru Rutas del Inca. This year, we purchased 300 bags of the cooperative's harvest, and while it plays a pivotal role in many of our mainstay blends, it's also one of those coffees that can shine on its own. 

Founded in 2013 with only 33 members, Rutas del Inca quickly grew to be one of Peru’s leading producers of organic-certified specialty coffee. Now consisting of over 258 members (30 women and 228 men), the cooperative stretches across 27 communities in the Querocoto, Huambos, and Querecotillo districts where the farmers receive excellent support in the form of fertilizers, drying tents, fermentation, de-pulping machines, and small irrigation systems.

As one of the few coffee cooperatives in Peru’s Chota province, Rutas del Inca pushes the boundaries of where coffee can be grown. Reaching high into the Peruvian mountains — up to 2,400 m — the farmers at Rutas del Inca take advantage of their region’s consistently cool temperatures for an even and controlled drying. Their unique ecosystem paired with their careful farming and processing creates a coffee that we are excited to buy year after year.

This year's harvest gives us the rich apple and chocolate notes that we always love. It's a coffee you can drink again and again and find something a little new each time. Balanced and sweet, Peru Rutas del Inca once again lives up to its reputation as one of the most consistent and solid coffees that we release.
