Coffee was first brought to Peru in the 1700´s but it was first in the late 1800´s that the export began. First mainly to Germany and England. In the 1900´s migrant workers came from the highlands to work on coffee farms and some ended up owning some land themselves. Others buyed land from the British when they left Peru. Peru is now one of the largest producers of coffee in the world.
The big issue in the Peru growing high quality coffee is the infrastructure, few mills are situated close to farms. This means that the farmer has to transport the harvested coffee a long way before processing. Therefore, a lot of the small producers in the country are members of a cooperative.
In the northern end of the Peruvian Andes, the region benefits from an equatorial climate and soils suitable for coffee. Most producers in the region are smallholders, they are organized and belong to producers organizations to supply technical help, training, loans, community development and other support e.g. CENFROCAFE works with 1900 families to promote coffee roasting and also runs a local café to help the farmers diversity
In Peru there is also a strong culture of organic and Fairtrade production. Fairtrade certification can only apply to coffee produced by a cooperative.
