The Story

For the last three years, we have offered micro-lots from members of the coffee growers cooperative La Prosperidad de Chirinos. This year, we purchased a coffee produced by brothers Salomon and Andres Bermeo. Only in their 30s, Salomon and Andres represent the next generation of quality-driven and innovative coffee farmers at Chirinos. All their farms are located near the village of Chirinos in the San Ignacio Province, which is within the Cajamarca growing region.

The La Prosperidad de Chirinos cooperative was established in 1968 by a group of 36 farmers who aspired to produce high-quality coffee. The group formed at a time when the government supported the formation of cooperatives with the goal of improving socio-economic conditions in Peru’s northwestern communities, which historically had been overlooked by the state. The co-op focuses its efforts on sustainable agriculture to improve coffee quality and secure better prices. In 2007, the cooperative established its own cupping lab to monitor cup quality. Two years ago, Chirinos completed construction on a new dry mill and they continue to cultivate an experimental farm where different coffee varieties and drying methods are tested
