Origin Notes

Peru's award winning coffee is named after the locally found bird and comes from the Peruvian Andes. Situated in the Tambopta Valley, South East of Peru on the border of Bolvia. The farmers belong to the Aymara and Quechua indigenous peoples and are all co-operative members.

On average each family manages a smallholding of around 2 hectares, and are rewarded for producing a high standard of coffee. They are paid well above the world trade price and the seasonally agreed price, to give the producers a guaranteed annual income, regardless of world price fluctuations. A percentage of the sales support sustainable development programs such as installing solar power – a short film of the installation is available to view on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a-C60nmZdo .
