About Illimani Lot #6

The community of Illimani is located near the base of the snow-capped mountain that also bears the Illimani name. With a height of 6,462 meters above sea level, this mountain is made up of 4 peaks and is the second highest mountain in the Bolivian Andes.

The Aymaras, who still live in the area, named it Illimani, which in Aymara means “where the sun rises.”

The snow from the Illimani mountain forms all the rivers and lagoons that provide water to the nearby towns, which is why its importance is vital for the survival of the Aymara communities and their crops, such as coffee.
This region has extreme climates that change in a matter of hours, from below zero degrees to tropical climates with temperatures between 19 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Likewise, the vegetation also changes rapidly, from large plantations of potatoes and quinoa to many hectares of coffee, plantain, yucca and others. These and other peculiarities of the Andean terrain create the complexity and differentiation of the Bolivian coffee.
