Colombia Munchique Reserve

Description

Munchique los Tigres reserve is located in the Santander de Quilichao Municipality on the central mountain range in Cauca. The river Mondomo dominates the reserve, snaking its way around the various ravines and mountain roads. Situated at a range of 1500 to 1900masl, the association who grows coffee in this beautiful area is called Nasa Pkakjera Uss Ya Txnxisa (NAPUY). They joined Cencoic in 2012 and back then only 39 families were producing coffee for the Association. It now boasts 129 families and has its own warehouse for receiving coffee. This allows them more control over the supply chain. Most of the community speak Spanish as their mother tongue but there is currently a drive to revive the local language Nasa Yuwe. More bilingual schools have been created as a result.

Notes from Northern Perú

31 July 2018

Travelling to and within Perú is getting easier and easier. We took a direct flight from Gatwick to Lima and then a short flight up to Jaén in Cajamarca. Jaén has changed greatly over the last 5 years and some consider it to be the coffee capital of not just northern Perú, but of the entire country.
