In the Qechua language, in the Andes, the word minca refers to a particular camaraderie between farmers. While producers will hire help for the harvest, during the year they depend on their neighbors. Groups will travel from farm to farm, accomplishing what needs to be done before moving on to the next farm. This idea of caring for the whole, this social bond, is minca. We borrowed this lovely term for our newest community lot, from 49 producers in Junin.

Super good, med. rst. coffee.

by

We did a sample of this coffee and loved it as as medium roast. Tried a dark roast as well but it left us wanting the medium again. Well balanced coffee, clear but not a bright acidity. Got even better as it cooled down just a bit in the cup. slight sweetness of caramel with a clean hint of chocolate.

Chocolate and caramel candy!

by

Loved this one. I also roasted it darker which brought out the chocolate more. The heavy body complemented the caramel flavor. It reminded me of a rich candy bar
