In the heart of the Amazon forest we meet a gigantic tree: it is up to 70 meters high, has a trunk of more than 3 meters and huge roots.

It's spectacular. It is the lupuna, a majestic tree of the Malvaceae family.

Considered by the Maya as a magical plant, almost as if it were the connection between the spirits of the sky and those of the earth, the tree species has been linked to a thousand and more legends since time immemorial. And in all stories there is always a sacred presence to be respected and protected.

The lupuna is among the trees that form, with their foliage, a green cradle in the upper part of the rain jungle to welcome insects, amphibians, toucans, monkeys, orchids, climbing plants and everything that, in order to survive, seeks the light of the sun . It has a role, therefore, if not really 'magical', undoubtedly fundamental in the Amazonian forest ecosystem.

In the Oxapampa Reserve, a grandiose wolf at the entrance to the coffee plantation gives its name to the entire area, therefore The Lupuna. The coffee that the indigenous community grows there is also dedicated to the splendid plant.

Yanesha farmers take care of the precious plants according to the principles of permaculture, ensuring the conservation of the original native characteristics and the protection of natural biodiversity to the Reserve.

The huge wolf seems to be there to protect the fruits of the earth and all the living beings that revolve around it. Its shadow extends over the plantation and contributes to the growth, fortification and intensification of the properties that we will find in the brown beans.

EarthSpresso Lupuna coffee, with its balanced full-bodied profile, invites you to feel the vital energy of the 'magical' Mayan tree. Its flavor, with notes of caramel, vanilla and fruity, conveys the strength and vigor of the Amazonian giant.
