Lonya Grande, El Rejo

Where Do Our Peruvian Beans Come From, and How is it Made?

Coffee reflects the geography and community of its origin; the elevation, climate, soil quality, and the years of shared farming methods employed by farmers affect coffee from farm to cup. Collaborating with a business that nurtures these qualities is essential to us. That is why we choose Fairtrade coffee beans from Peru to ensure the coffee beans we enjoy are ethically produced with a high-quality standard.

Our Peruvian coffee beans come from Lonya Grande, El Rejo, grown at elevations of 1600 meters on Mirador, a Fairtrade and organic coffee farm owned by Ysauro Tocto Chugden. The 1.5-hectare farm principally cultivates the Bourbon, Castillo, and Catimor coffee bean varieties, and his farm is known for innovation in new types and farming processes of coffee.

Ysauro is an innovative specialty producer, farmer, and member of the Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP), also known as "El Palto" cooperative located in the Amazonian Andes of Northern Peru called "Selva Alta" (high forest). The association of farmers and coffee growers ensures high-quality, organically grown coffee is produced for the customer while taking good care of communities and strengthening livelihood.

COOP JUMARP is based in Selva Alta regions, unique for its dense, high elevation, and humid rainforest ecosystems ideal for growing high-quality coffee. The thirty-five small farmers, including Ysauro and the other 189 members of COOP JUMARP, grow their coffee under the canopy of the Amazon rain forest.

As producers of organic and Fairtrade certified coffee, the organization is represented by forty women from the organizational families, along with their mission to meet the demand for quality specialty coffee and increase income for the members and their families.

The unique geography of Selva Alta and its farmers' dedication to cultivating innovative and community-driven coffee farms factor in the high-quality taste and specialty grade of our Peruvian coffee beans.
