Description

According to World Coffee Research, Peru is the world’s leading producer of certified Fair Trade and organic arabica coffee. A third of all agricultural employment in Peru is connected to coffee. National priorities for coffee include increasing productivity using sustainable approaches, improving the consistency of quality, and building international awareness and demand for Peruvian coffee. For two decades, coffee was the most important agricultural crop in the country, today it faces increasing competition from high-value crops like grapes, avocados, and blueberries. Peru does not have a national coffee institution, but does have a national coffee strategy (2018-2030).

It is ranked 9th in the Global Exports market and 75% of the coffee is produced by smallholders.

Meet the farmer

Lucero Anayeli Torres is the wife of Elvis Reinerio Tineo Rafael who is a second-generation coffee producer that owns land in the El Diamante area of Jaen. Elvis himself owns 3 hectares of land, which is planted with bourbon, caturra and catuai and sits at an altitude of 1600 to 1900 masl. Elvis and his family work the land together, coordinating their picking, processing, and drying and sharing their facilities. Over the last few years Elvis has been investing in improving the quality of his coffee, improving the quality of picking and experimenting with pre-fermentations and different fermentation methods. Elvis has participated in the Cup of Excellence competition two years in a row, in 2018 he finished 7th place and in 2019 in the top 30.

El Diamante

El Diamante is one of the closest coffee producing areas to the city of Jaen and therefore has a huge cooperative presence, at least in the lower elevations. We work with a couple of coffee producing families in El Diamante, who have farms from 1600 to 2000masl. The main varieties grown in the medium altitudes is catuai and castillo, and at higher altitudes it is all bourbon, caturra and typica. El Diamante is one of the few areas in Jaen to have protected forests, which are home to a variety of flora and fauna native to the region. Not only that, there are also many water sources that supply much of the water to the city. This thriving natural environment creates a beautiful setting to grow coffee, but also contributes to the richness and stability of the soils in the area. The cup profile of the coffees in this area is very distinct, with a heavily fruited cup and a pronounced acidity.

We recommend that for larger 500g and 1Kg orders, that you purchase whole beans to grind as-and-when you need them. This is to ensure that your coffee stays fresh for as long as possible. For more information see our FAQs
