The Story

This year we will feature a trio of coffees from Peru’s Cajamarca region that we will offer under the “Cajamarca” name. This lot comes from CENFROCAFE, a coffee grower’s cooperative located in northern Peru. Sharing a border with Ecuador, Cajamarca is situated in the Andes mountains, the longest mountain range in the world. Founded in 1999, CENFROCAFE started with 220 small-scale coffee farmers in eleven community-based associations. Today the co-op serves more than 2,000 farmer members who belong to twelve local associations found throughout the lush Cajamarca region.

CENFROCAFE is one of the leaders in creating cooperative alliances with like-minded associations in the greater Cajamarca region. The co-op provides important technical and marketing services to the small-scale farmers in northern Peru. Without this kind of strong organizational support, local farmers would have been left to produce coffee and find buyers on their own. Instead CENFROCAFE helps farmers develop best practice strategies for cultivating healthy fields, increased production yields, and for locating markets, facilitating sales and export of their coffee.
