Rob says: Our favourite Peruvian coffee from 2019 is back ladies and gentlemen! May i present you, once again and with great honour; el FINCA TIMBUYACU!
Finca Timbuyacu, is the cornerstone of the Café Monteverde cooperative, serving as a model farm, experiment station and more.
Timbuyacu is Alfonso and Karim’s private coffee farm, just outside of Mendoza. Timbuyacu is a Quechua word, yaku meaning water and timbu roughly translating to source. The farm is named this in reference to the groundwater spring present on the land, which belonged to Alfonso’s grandmother. Alfonso and Karim began cultivating coffee here in 2010 in order to better understand the realities of the producers they were buying from.
