Valentín Orosco Maytan began his journey as a coffee farmer in 2000 on his farm, Ladera- Amaybamba. The same year, he removed all of the coca plant he was once producing, and replaced them with Typica and Caturra coffee trees. Valentín has since become a member of the Incahuisi Co-op, and has improved many aspects of his operation, such as organic fertilizing. High elevations and a dry climate in the Cusco department offers excellentmouth-feel, sweetness, and ripe fruit flavors.
