The Q graders in our cupping lab scored this coffee 85. In the Qechua language, in the Andes, minca refers to a particular camaraderie between farmers. While producers will hire help for the harvest, during the year they depend on their neighbors. Groups will travel from farm to farm, accomplishing what needs to be done before moving on to the next farm. This idea of caring for the whole — this social bond — is minca. We borrowed this lovely term for our newest community lot, from 49 producers in Junin.
