Coffee farmers across the northern corridor of the Peruvian Andes have a nickname for their region: “ceja de selva”, or jungle eyebrows, referring to their relative position at the top of the Amazon. This dark roast blend represents cooperatives from two main growing regions in northern Peru - Cajamarca in the west and San Martín in the center.
Peru is known for their emphasis on cooperativism among smallholder farmers. As a single country, they are consistently the top Fairtrade coffee producer globally, accounting for an estimated 26% of all Fairtrade coffee. Cooperatives use their Fairtrade Premium to invest in local infrastructure, reforestation and quality improvement.
