CENFROCAFE is one of Peru’s largest and possibly best-organized cooperatives in Latin America. This co-op has been able to support nearly 2,000 coffee-growing families by offering agricultural and financial resources, as well as encouraging producers to gain exposure to specialty coffee and learn to roast. Peru’s lush highlands and good heirloom varieties offer the potential for growers to beat the obstacles of limited infrastructure and market access. Cajamarca in the northwest is not only where the bulk of the country’s coffees come from, but also far and away the best-cupping lots. A small group of producers there have been developing microlot, top-shelf quality coffees for several years, opening the doors to more specific Regional Select coffees and higher standard specialty coffee.
