About this coffee
Located in the fertile region of Cusco, Hugo Pareja and his family have been producing some incredible coffee at Finca Bella Vista. In the past few years, Cusco has been taken the highlight as Peru’s most prominent coffee region. In 2021 five out of ten Cup of Excellent winners came from this region and it is expected the trend will continue upwards.
Hugo Pareja is one of the coffee producers from this region. Having grown up in a coffee-producing family, Hugo has many years of learning about the craft since his childhood. He had his farm since the age of 17 and continue the tradition with his wife Flor and his children.
Hugo and his family used to mainly cultivate typica variety until their cooperative gave them some seeds that were unknown to them to be Geisha. The first harvest of the new variety was impressive. The cooperative was really impressed by the cup quality and saw a huge potential to produce even higher scoring coffees. Because of that, the cooperative gave Hugo more seeds and extensive training on selective picking and coffee fermentation.
Over time Hugo and his wife Flor understand the potential of this new variety which was then known to them as Geisha. It leads them to set up their own nursery with 1000 Geishas seedlings. Additionally, Hugo cultivates Typica, Bourbon, Caturra and Catimor on his farm.
