Peruvian Fair Trade Organic Apurimac Coffee

Peruvian Fair Trade Organic Apurimac Coffee produced by Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Valle Rio Apurimac LTDA
This is a well-balanced coffee, nice body, some caramel bottom notes, and fruity high notes.  All of the coffees that we sell are of the highest quality and bring top prices for their producers. These beans , however, have been certified Fair Trade by an independent organization to guarantee the producer is receiving a fair price. As well, they have been certified to have been produced organically.

Armeno’s Peru is from the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Valle Rio Apurimac, or CACVRA. This farming coop is located in the Ayacucho region along the river valley Apurimac, and consists of approximately 1500 members. The members produce both Fair Trade Organic coffee and cocoa as viable alternatives to the cultivation of coca. The coop has been certified to organic standards since 2000 and to Fair Trade standards since 2003. The coffee is grown on small farms of less than 5 hectares, and under a vast canopy alongside avocados, oranges and other fruit trees.

Most farms have their own washing station and drying patios, and the cooperative employs several technicians who are constantly visiting and working with the farmers to ensure quality and consistency.

Higher Ground’s Peruvian beans are grown at high elevations in the Apurimac River Valley in the central highlands of Peru – this exceptional altitude creates a coffee with a bright acidity. This exceptional coffee is characterized by its pleasant aroma and a full body, with a sweet finish to the cup.

Higher Ground’s Peruvian beans are grown in the Apurimac region, between 1300 and 1800 meters elevation, on very small family farms. This coffee, like all Higher Ground coffees, is grown with care under the shade of the forest canopy. The Peruvian beans in particular are grown alongside avocados, oranges, and other fruit trees. In this way, families of the CACVRA Coop have been able to diversify their crops and sell those goods in local markets. With higher incomes from Fair Trade sales, the co-op has been able to improve

  • education for families of Coop members
  • available healthcare opportunities
  • the overall system of organic production—with high standards increasing investment in coffee quality
