Additional Information

Contributing farms are very small with average organic production of only 40 pounds of coffee, in parchment, per acre. Located in the mountainous region of the Cajamarca province in Peru. This region of Peru is also marked by national and international mining companies who often do not pay laborers a fair wage. Aprocassi also formed to give people an alternative to the mining industry. Aprocassi continually seeks to produce high-quality coffee and improve its members’ standard of living through higher prices. Most families work on approximately seven hectares of land and grow a variety of products, including coffee in the higher elevations. Collectively, the cooperative has an estimated 2,705 hectares of land producing organic coffee. Since becoming Fair Trade Certified in 2001, the cooperative has financed several social and productive programs using its Fair Trade premium. Peru is the world’s leading producer of organic coffee. All processing is fully washed which includes depulping, fermentation, washing and sun and/or mechanical drying.
