The Chachapoyas people come from one of the least explored and most remote areas in the world. For centuries, they practiced sustainable agriculture in the narrow valleys of Peru’s Amazon region and were self-sustaining, through a balance of agriculture, fishing and hunting. Eventually, outside influences led them to make changes — including transitioning to coffee from only short-term crops such as chilis and fruits. The Asociacion de Productores Sostenibles Chachapoyas (APSY) has a membership of 32 producers, 55 percent of whom are women. They united to create this coffee, invest in their village and proudly represent the Chachapoyas name. This coffee was de-pulped by machine, fermented in water for 16 hours and floated with a siphon, twice, to separate out inferior beans. It was dried on a cement patio over four days, receiving 35 total hours of sunlight.
