Origin Story

La Prosperidad de Chirinos

This year we will feature a pair of coffees from Peru’s Cajamarca region that
we will offer under the “Cajamarca” name. This lot comes from Chirinos, a
coffee grower’s cooperative located in northern Peru’s San Ignacio province,
within the Cajamarca growing region. Cajamarca, which extends to the
Ecuador border, is situated in the Andes mountains, the longest mountain
range in the world. Since being founded in 1968, Chirinos has grown from 36
to over 700 members, some of whom have been a part of the organization
since its inception. The group aims to improve the quality of life of its
members through education, sustainability initiatives, and food security
programs, as well as the diversification of their lands.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

Environmental awareness is rooted in the ethos of the Chirinos community,
and much of the coffee cultivated there is organic and Fair Trade certified.
While better for the environment, organic production can create challenges
for producers, limiting their options to combat pests and diseases and the
types of fertilizer that they can use. Addressing the issue of access to
organic fertilizer, the Chirinos co-op maintains a large plant that produces
organic compost which is distributed amongst its members.
