After years of stumbling along in my pandemic-infused brain via Spanish zoom calls with the team Peru, it was great to finally pack my bag and head back to Peru. It had been many years since I'd been in Peru, in fact, a decade. I was curious to return to see what changed and what stayed the same. Olympia Coffee sourced coffees from Peru from the region of Cusco surrounding the town of Quillabamba for many years.
In 2020 as the pandemic started we had already committed to return to sourcing coffee from the same community. This time with better planning and better support on the ground in partnership with Caravela Coffee.
