Andrea Jácome is a Colombian-Ecuadorian herbalist, writer, and organizer born and raised in Atlanta. Since 2016, she has been an apprentice with Master Spiritual Herbalist Karen Rose of Sacred Vibes Apothecary. She is currently living between Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

Cocarosa is named in honor of two of most cultivated and sought-after plants in the Andes-- the coca leaf and roses. Though highly visible across the global market, these different plants share an intimately interconnected legacy in the war on drugs. Cocarosa is a recovery and reclamation of plant medicine in their whole true forms.

Guided by the legacy of Andrea’s afro-indigenous teachers and ancestors, Cocarosa Apothecary is a plant medicine practice that seeks to commune with our past, present, and futures through the stories and healing that plants have to offer.
