Farms are sacred to the Incahuasi producer-partners. Most producer partners in this co-op harvest using a traditional system called “ayni” or reciprocal work. This means that work-in-kind is exchanged between neighbours, and special food and drinks are provided in turn by each hosting farm.
The concept of ayni goes beyond just cooperation amongst people; it also recognizes the mutual and beneficial relationship humans have with nature and the universe. Traditionally, these harvest gatherings conclude with farmers giving thanks to the Earth Goddess, Pachamama. Incahuasi has over 380 producers, with approximately one-quarter of these being women. Social premiums from the coffee sold through SPP Certification is put towards reforestation and soil erosion programs.
