Peru is located in northwestern South America, right along the Pacific coast. The country is divided into three regions: costa (along the Pacific coast), sierra (the Andes Mountains), and Amazonia (the eastern portion of the country, the source of the Amazon River). These vastly different regions of the country make it difficult to travel from one region to another, but they also allow for a variety of crops, including coffee, which came to the area in the 1700s.
Our Peruvian coffee comes from the Central Fronterixa del Norte de Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE) cooperative. This grade 1 FTO coffee includes Typica, Castillo, Bourbon, and Caturra varieties, all grown at an altitude of 1,000-1,900 feet, washed, and sundried on patios and raised beds.
Located in the Jean, Cajamara, and San Ignacio regions of northern Peru, CENFROCAFE began with 220 small-scale coffee farmers in 1999. It has now grown to more than 3,000 small farms in 84 different bases. The co-op is committed to social justice, freedom, and democracy and is always working to improve conditions for farmers, their families, and the community at large.
