Manuela Apaza Gerillo created this sweet coca bag outdoors in her small village of Yanaruma lying over 15,000 ft. (4500 m.) at the highest habitable elevation in the Andes Mountains. A photo of Manuela holding a similar coca bag is included with your purchase. Your purchase helps her, her family, and her community.
