This lot of Peru Fair Trade Organic comes from the Bosques Verdes Producers Association located in the San Ignacio province in the Cajamarca department of Peru. It is a non-profit organization consisting of 195 members who founded it with a common goal of selling their coffee at better prices and to improve the quality of life for the members and their families.
The Association was founded in 2005 and in 2013 was transformed into a Cooperative called Agraria Cafetalera Bosques Verdes. The formation of the cooperative was intended to connect more farmers and provide greater representation and benefits for its partners.
Peru is the world's leading producer of organic coffee. The main varietals represented here are Typica, Caturra and Bourbon. All processing is fully washed which includes depulping, fermentation, washing and sun drying.
Fair Trade USA and USDA Organic Certified.
