"There exists in the universe a force capable of traversing the three worlds of man: a goddess represented by a great serpent or snake. It is born in Ukhu Pacha and emerges to the earth, crawling with mighty trembling towards Kay Pacha. It meanders forward, creating life in its wake. Turning into a cloud, it ascends towards Hanan Pacha to take the form of lightning, announcing itself with lightning and with its light to finally fall with a roar in the form of rain, blessing our land and all its fruits".
"History based on the legend collected by the amauta Luis E. Valcárcel in his book: 'Ethnohistory of Ancient Peru'. Ed. UNMSM. Lima, 1964, Second edition, pp.137-138".

ORGANIC AGRICULTURE AS A COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Whatever the times on this planet, there are always guardians who understand the messages that nature has given us and will continue to give us. Especially in lands like ours.
In Yakumama we promote the practice of organic agriculture in the organizations with which we work, so that we obtain chemical-free coffees and, at the same time, we conserve the fertility of our lands and the biodiversity of the environment, including the protection of water sources and forest species. In this way, in the context of climate change, we ensure the sustainability of coffee and other crops for future generations.
Although the human being is defined as an animal of progress, there are methods that go beyond time. The practice of organic agriculture in our communities guarantees the cultivation and processing of coffee without the use of agrochemicals, thus conserving the soil, fertilizing it and planting trees that provide natural shade to our coffee plantations.
The emergence and care of life always needed that which complements each other. We, for example, place emphasis on cultural and technological practices that foster renewed, pruned, healthy and nourished coffee plantations. This meticulousness of an integral knowledge protects the coffee from pests and makes it possible to conserve all the organoleptic attributes that make the bean stand out in the cup.
The blessing that is poured generously on our lands will only be well used through effort and development. As a company, we work to increase crop productivity, to combat pests that can harm us and to strengthen the capacities of our producer families, as well as to properly manage drying, transportation and storage.
