About Cusco Coffee:

Cusco, ancestral stronghold of the Incas, has a dynamic ancient culture that stands out worldwide. Inca customs and legacies still exist as an important part of Peru's identity. Cusco, an Andean area replete with snow-capped mountains, lagoons and frozen areas, also contains a large portion of the Peruvian Amazon, a place where different cultures converge and home to the greatest biodiversity in Latin America.

It is in this forest where some of the finest coffees in Peru are produced—especially in the Santa Teresa district. Santa Teresa sits at the base of the Templo de La Luna on the Urubamba river, all within the larger region of Cusco.

Cusco's mountains were exploited for their mineral wealth and much of the land was depredated. Eventually, the mines were abandoned once the mineral in the area ran out, giving way to a retropicalization of the devastated areas. The area's wildlife and flora returned with force, giving impetus to the re-introduction of agriculture including the cultivation of coffee trees.
