Peru Fair Trade $12.95 /lb.

Our newest arrival from Peru is a Fair Trade Organic coffee grown by 124 women producers who have banded together in their own cooperative. They are in charge from seedling to harvest and their hard work is evident in the cup. A full city roast has notes of baked apple, dried orange and cinnamon along with deep cocoa flavors.

Women represent a large percentage of the labor input for the coffee industry at origin. During the past several years the Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros de la Cuenca del Rio Maranon (APROCCURMA) cooperative has worked directly with women producers to establish land ownership and then provide training on organic management and environmental practices. The fertile volcanic soil, almost a mile high in the Andes of Amazonas contributes to the cup quality. The cooperative’s efforts qualify them for Fair Trade Organic certification. Land ownership, organization and representation by the cooperative provides women producers with all of the revenue generated from coffee production on their farms.
