Plant & perfume

Pepper (piper nigrum) is a major spice, the world's most important in terms of production. The pepper plant is a climbing vine that can reach a height of ten meters. Pepper comes in the form of a hanging cluster of twenty to thirty seeds tightly packed around the stem.

This Amazonian pepper, grown in Ecuador, is a unique pepper; nothing can compare with it. Its aroma evokes complex notes of cocoa, orange, tangelo and cinnamon cassia. To the taste, a swirl of heat invades your palate after 3 seconds, giving way to notes of wild mango and ripe orange. A definitely fruity and powerful pepper.

A long journey

In 1899, Peru was the first country to accept Japanese immigration. A few Japanese emigrants brought a few pepper plants for their personal use. This cultivation was carried out solely in their gardens for personal use.

It was in the Ucayali river basin in Peru, some fifty years ago, that our grower's grandfather received a few pepper plants from a Japanese emigrant.

After years of harassment by guerrillas, it wasn't until the late 1990s that the family found a unique terroir in the equatorial forest to finally express all their ancestral know-how as farmers. The result today is an exceptional pepper grown by the Yupanqui family from Cuzco (Peru).

For the record, Yupanqui is the name of several Inca emperors, meaning “priceless” or “he who shines”.
