A Brief History

Peru has one of the most diverse climates of all the coffee producing regions around the world, which is what gives her coffee such a unique flavor. As early as 1700, coffee was being produced by indigenous peoples due to Spanish colonial influence. This is a common thread in coffee producing regions. The specific region in which we source focuses on gender equality, which lends to a more fair distribution of land for male and female producers. The growth of coops helps these men and women and with that the entire Peruvian economy bolsters around the export of high quality, fair trade coffees.
