In the province of La Convención, ocated 20 km away from the town of Quillabamba, in the small district of Echarate, at an altitude of 900 meters above sea level, there is a beautiful natural wonder, the waterfall of Las Siete Tinajas. The waterfall is a stream composed of lithic granite outcrops. As time passed and on its way through the waterfall, the icy waters carved into the rock different types of wells of very irregular shapes, leading to its formation and creating 7 water streams – reason why it is called Siete Tinajas or Seven Jars.
Local story holds that Siete Tinajas also represented a place of conversation, and it was possibly an important ceremonial center of the cult of water. It is surely scenic beauty of the natural wealth that surrounds this waterfall, of tropical flora and fauna typical of the Amazo- nian climate and the warmth of the inhabitants, wide fields of cocoa and coffee. For this reason, Las Siete Tinajas has a very important meaning archeologically and anthropologica- lly. When you visit this place, you’ll enter in a magical world with charming people and beau- tiful surroundings, the place where coffee of Siete Tinajas is grown.
“Siete Tinajas is uniquely floral with notes of chocolate, oranges, caramel and honey with medium body and sweet aftertaste.”
