COOPAFSI is a fair trade and organic certified cooperative, located in the province of San Ignacio, in the region of Cajamarca. The group was founded in 1969 with 10 producers, and has since grown to over 350 producers, 80 of which are women. The main goal of COOPAFSI is to improve the livelihood of the producers and their families. One of the ways they have grown and continued to achieve this is by focusing on improving the overall quality of their coffee to receive higher premiums for their hard work.
This coffee is a micro lot, coming from one of the smallholder farmers that makes up the Northern Peru coop. Made up of Catimor and Pache varietals, both are hybrids that help solve certain issues such as resistance to coffee leaf rust (Catimor), and smaller overall plant height (Pache).
Amazing flavors like red grape, a honey butter sweetness, and a juicy finish has us drinking this Peru every day here at the roastery! It has plenty of complexity and great overall characteristics that make it both approachable for an every day drinking coffee, while also keeping you excited for that next cup. For those that are looking for a reference point, this coffee is similar to our Colombia Santa Barbara but with a bit more acidity, and more pronounced sweetness. We wish we could get twice as much of this coffee as what we were able to, so it should go fast!
