Quechua /ˈkɛtʃwə/ is an indigenous language spoken by around 10 million people living in the Andes and highlands of South America. It’s also known as people’s language or runa simi, and widely known for being the main language of the Inca Empire. Today about 13% of Peruvians speak Quechua.
We borrow the Quechua word Chanikuy to name our Peruvian triple certified single origin coffee. The word has a unique meaning and doesn’t have a translation in any other language. It is used to describe the act when you are sharing your food with someone you appreciate. We chose this special and beautiful word because for us it means joy of life.
We want to share our joy for coffee with special people like you.
