PERU – Finca Timbuyacu – Natural Fermented

Alfonso Tejada Iberico inherited Finca Timbuyacu from his mother, who inherited it in turn from her own mother, Eleodora Mori de Ibérico. Eleodora has been a source of inspiration for Alfonso his wife, Karim Rosario Araoz Grandez. The farm’s name comes from a story Eleodora used to tell Alfonso about a spring on the farm that had so much water, the water spat from the spring as if were boiling. The name Timbuyacu comes from the Quecha words timbu meaning boiling and yacu meaning water.

In order to continue his grandmother’s legacy, Alfonso and Karim began their “Nueva Esperanza” project in 2010 when they sold their Lima-based travel agency in order to return to Finca Timbuyacu and establish a model farm.

Under their care, Finca Timbuyacu became the heart of Cafe Monteverde’s efforts. The pair were committed to improving social conditions for other small producers in the region, and they envisaged the business as a means of helping producers in the region to market their coffee in better conditions.

Perhaps most significant is the role Finca Timbuyacu plays as a model farm. Members can visit to learn about farm management and harvesting as well as post-harvest practices like fermentation, washing and different drying methods. Finca Timbuyacu specializes in teaching members a variety of skills that will lift their quality of production to the highest levels possible.

Paret Alfonso Tejada Iberico & Karim Rosario Araoz Grandez grundade Café Monteverde, ett kooperativ med säte i deras hemstad Rodríguez de Mendoza, 2003. Deras gård, Finca Timbuyacu, är hjärtat i kooperativet och fungerar som en utgångspunkt för utveckling inom kaffe.

Alfonso Tejada Iberico ärvde Finca Timbuyacu från sin mor, som i sin i tur ärvde det från sin mor, Eleodora Mori de Ibérico.
Eleodora har varit en stor inspirationskälla för Alfonsos fru. Gårdens namn kommer från en berättelse som Eleodora brukade berätta för Alfonso om en källa på gården som hade så mycket vatten att vattnet ”spottade” från källan som om det kokade.
Namnet Timbuyacu kommer från Quecha-orden timbu som betyder kokande och yacu som betyder vatten.
