Peru El Locoo Natural

We only roast 5kg of this coffee for sale

This Peru El Locoo Natural is sourced from the Pasco region of Peru, grown in the small town of Huancabamba, Oxapampa on the El Locoo farm.

Elias Inga and his son Litman have worked with 7 Elements since 2017. In 2021, after attending a 7 Elements training on special processing methods, they decided to try Natural processing for the first time. The results were so good and the cup quality so great that everyone ‘went mad’ about the coffee and Elias and Litman decided to name is “La Locura” meaning “something crazy.”

Giorgio Piracci, a biologist specializing in technologies, began working with the Yanesha Indigenous community while studying environmental conservation in Oxapampa, Peru in 2005. In 2014, Giorgio and a close friend founded the NGO (non-governmental organization) 7 Elements to both support Yanesha farmers and create a new business model that would be “a disruptive changemaker” focused on creating more even social, environmental and monetary profits.

7 Elements promotes permaculture techniques to help farmers achieve higher income security. Following the ideology of permaculture, 7 Elements reinvests surplus profits in the program for the benefit of everyone involved.

7 Elements commits to paying double the market price for coffee. As word of the program’s success for farmers spreads through communities, more and more youth are now expressing hope that agriculture offers them an opportunity for a successful future, Giorgio reports
