Cuzco is a vast region on which distances, the difficult connectivity, the maintenance of their traditions and the impressive conservation of nature play a significant role throughout the process.
Cuzco’s history has not been easy at all, since the lack of policies focused on agriculture, external projects that have employed coffee producers on other labors and the yellow rust, which devastated a large amount of the coffee plantations of the whole region have been determining factors in the quality and quantity of production in the region.
