Apolinar Arevalo is the picture of a typical Peruvian coffee farmer. His life and work story the norm rather than a singled out exception. His coffee, however, is a little different. This is why the team from ST. ALi travelled the long, often arduous journey to see him. Travelling by taxi up steep mountains, riding less than ideal cable cars, and finally hiking steep terrain just to see him. Needless to say, ST. ALi was the first to make this trek.
