The altromercato barley, roasted and solubilized in Italy, and cultivated in Eucador with traditional methods, to more than 2,300 meters high, by members of the ECCA cooperatives Comuna Tunibamba Cotopaxi and Cotacachi. The production is integrated with that of other goods such as beans, lentils, potatoes and chocho. Businesses are associated with Camari, nonprofit organization that is committed to social and training in agriculture and handicraft industry, the struggle for recognition of the Quechua language and culture, through a network of small independent shops, tiendas campesinas, which elude dependence on intermediaries
