A very remote area in Northern Peru with breathtaking landscapes that is a mecca for growing organic coffee. When visiting here, the producers always offer upon arrival a shot of homemade aguardiente, anise-flavored firewater booze that the locals make and store in plastic Coca-Cola liters. The coffee culture here is relatively new and the region is only just beginning to gain access to basic infrastructure, such as electricity and paved roads. It's a rugged trek but the region produces incredibly expressive organic coffees.
