Calca comes to us from the heart of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Peru during the Tahuantinsuyo, or Inca Empire. In Cusco, every corner is full of history. A renowned region for both its history and coffee, it maintains vestiges of what was once the most important power in all of South America.
Deep in Cusco we find the city of Calca. Pre-Inca, the town that occupied this area was called Kallka, and the farmers there an indigenous group called Lliplleq. In Calca we find some of the best coffee quality in all of Peru, coffee rooted within the heritage of this unique subregion and its people.
