About Marcelino Robles Saya

Cusco, ancestral stronghold of the Incas, has a dynamic ancient culture that stands out worldwide. Inca customs and legacies still exist as an important part of Peru’s identity.

Cusco, despite being an Andean area replete with snow-capped mountains, lagoons and frozen areas, also contains a large portion of the Peruvian Amazon, a place where different cultures converge and home to the greatest biodiversity in Latin America.

It is in this forest where some of the finest coffees in Peru are produced—especially in Yanatile district.

Yanatile is a unique place with a wide variety of environs, where you can perceive drastic changes in the terrain and climate in just a couple of hours’ travel.

Ccorimayo is a small town within the Yanatile district, made up of 30 coffee-producing families. Everyone in the community speaks Quechua as their first spoken language.

The full name of the community Ccorimayo (Ccorimayo is a Quechua word meaning river of gold). To get there you have to drive for almost 9 hours from the city of Cusco.

Marcelino is one of our producer partners in the sector, he is 68 years old and has been cultivating coffee all his life, all his children and wife help him each crop, he is one of the few producers that is always improving his techniques listening very carefully to what the field technicians say.
