ABOUT

Evelio Mego obtained the plot ‘El Huailulo’ through a purchase of land, in order to install pasture for cattle. But at that time there was a project with a cooperative and they had asked for the planting of caturra coffee and bourbon, from that moment he discovered an interest in coffee farming which evolved into passion. Evelio ‘s coffee fetched 22nd place in Peru’s Cup of Excellence in 2018. This year we purchased his coffee through a regional auction called Atipanaku - the first of it’s kind!   The farms soil composition is a sandy loam, which makes for good drainage. It’s flora and fauna range from Cedar to bananas trees. Evelio’s methods of fertilization are fully organic and he has employed the use of level curves for planting, along with ‘live barriers’ - loose scrub, leaves and other organic matter are built up and used to protect the base of the shrubs.
