Our stunning family ranch is a sanctuary of local, seasonal, and organic food and a great place to relax and learn about Peruvian artisanal coffee. We invite you to be our guest - the ranch is surrounded by majestic mountains of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where you’ll have a chance to tour our organic vegetable garden, and say hello to the horses. During the workshop, you can enjoy the views of native plants while hummingbirds are fluttering their wings just under the window.
Whether you’re a coffee aficionado, or simply love your morning cup of joe, this workshop will take your knowledge and appreciation of this fine beverage to the next level…. Using the best local beans and the traditional artisanal process for roasting and grinding - we’ll help you create an exquisite cup of coffee.
We use only fair-trade organic coffee that grows throughout the Sacred Valley of the Incas, on the farms north of the ranch. Peru is the world’s fifth-largest producer of Arabica beans, so we know a thing or two about coffee here, and what’s special about this region is that most farms here don’t use pesticides or chemical fertilizers, allowing the Sacred Valley to produce delicious artisanal organic coffee.
Our local coffee expert, Abraham, grew up growing and making coffee in the Peruvian Amazon jungle and is knowledgeable about the origins and characteristics of the precious beans we are using. With Abraham guiding you along, you will be part of the whole process, you’ll prepare the beans, roast them to perfection, get insights into the way locals prepare it, and compare several different preparations, and of course, enjoy a few delicious cups.
This workshop can be combined with gourmet meals on our ranch and/or any of our horseback rides or activities for a half-day or full-day experience.
As we are located directly at the foot of the hill under the Salineras de Maras site, you can combine this workshop with a Salt Workshop which we offer at the famous Salineras site. This is only a 30-45 minute moderate and stunning hike. You get to see Salineras from a perspective that most don’t get to see and get off-the-beaten-path and enter the private areas of the Salineras to do the salt collection yourself along with the locals.
Each ride and workshop can be conducted as private (only for your group) for an additional fee.
