The underdog to the South America coffees growing countries, Peruvian coffee exportation accounts for just over two-percent of the global coffee supply. Traditionally cultivated and shade grown are some attributes to the art of growing coffee in the region. Boulder Organic Coffee, with the help of Fair Trade, USA, works directly with the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Bagua Grande.

The Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Bagua Grande is located in the Amazonas region of northeastern Peru. Established in 1979 in response to low prices paid by local coyotes, Bagua Grande has grown to be the largest coffee cooperative in its region. Currently, the organization counts with 450 small coffee farmer members.

From May to September, farmers pick ripe cherries and carry them to hand pulpers and wooden fermentation tanks. This tradition of micro-wet-milling has protected Peru’s water resources from the devastating effects of river polluting pulping factories. Most farmers are found hiking their beans by foot or mule to the nearest town.

Due to the help of Fair Trade, USA and other Organic certifying agencies, Peru has seen stimulated growth in its coffee production and is one of the world’s top organic producers and has some of the most exceptional and vivacious coffees among the coffee world.

Our Fair Trade Organic Peru coffee is fully washed and sun dried to help achieve the deep and unique taste that is Peru coffee.

All Boulder Organic Coffee is offered as whole bean. This coffee roasts on Thursday and ships on Friday.
