Peru Satipo Finca Tasta is sourced from Finca Tasta, a family owned operation located in the community of Challhuamayo within the district of Laylla in the province of Satipo within the Junin region, Peru. Finca Tasta is owned and operated by two young siblings, Edith and Ivan Meza Sagarvinaga. Finca Tasta is a 56-acre estate with 19 acres cultivated with coffee and 22 acres are natural preserved forest. Edith and Ivan are second generation coffee producers and started farming specialty coffee only eight years ago. Edith is an active member of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) in Peru. A few years ago, the International Trade Centre (ITC) awarded Edith with the opportunity to visit Seattle during the Specialty Coffee Expo to be part of B2B meetings where Edith met coffee professionals and learned about Specialty Coffee and the marketing. Finca Tasta has become a major source of employment for people from Challhuamayo. The farm employs 6 people on a permanent basis and 36 people during the harvesting months. In addition to coffee, Edith and Ivan produce plantains, yucca, tomatoes, sugarcane, raspberries, and pumpkins. Finca Tasta’s goal for the future is to continue to experiment with coffee processing to diversify their coffee offerings. Edith and Ivan want to be self-sustainable while making sure they take care of the environment and the people living nearby.
