Acconcharcas has a small population, with several microclimates that limit the expansion of coffee-growing areas. This little town is located at 1800-2300 masl.
Coffee cultivation began here in 1990, with a primary planting of Typica varieties. The distance between Acconcharcas and the main cities of Cusco blocked producers from entering the high-end specialty market even though their coffees were outstanding. Back then it took a 3 day trip and several mules to move the coffee from the field to Quillabamba, the closest place to sell it.
Over the years, the coffee producers organized and many roads were constructed, improving logistics and enabling connection with new and better markets.
Today, producers grow several varieties such as Bourbon, Typica, Catimor, Geisha, and Caturra under the shade of native trees.
Coffee is now the most important product of Inkawasi valley and a decisive factor in the economic and social improvement of the producers of the area.
