About Rosarios Bajos

The town of Rosario Bajo is located in the district of Carmen de la Frontera, within the province of Huancabamba in the Piura region, on the border between Namballe in Cajamarca and Ecuador.

This district is characterized by having extremely varied altitudes, climates, and terrain. In the highest part of the Andes in this region (approximately 3,000 masl) we find moors and cloud forests. Up here, the climate is so cold only potatoes and other tubers grow.

All this changes if we travel 2 hours north, right up to the Ecuador border. This area is known as Selva Alta (high jungle). Here, the climate becomes more tropical, the vegetation thickens, and agricultural products diversify.
It is in this area where we find coffee and sugar cane crops and production of panela and yonque (popular alcoholic beverage in the area).

Rosario Bajo area is part of the Chicuate-Chinguelas conservation area where several species in danger of extinction are protected, such as the Andean cock of the rock, tapir, and spectacled bear.

In this area coffee production coexists in total balance with the preservation of the ecosystem. The natural result is a sustainable and excellent quality coffee.
