A group of almost 200 small farmers encompassing 550 hectares together form a fair trade and organic cooperative call Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP), which is also known as simply El Palto.  Women represent 40 of the organizational members and women have a constant presence on their Board of Directors.  This specific coffee is a single producing lot grown by Eli Gallardo and his family.

The altitude and climate, being situated within the Andes Mountains, foster prime growing conditions.  Moreover, during the last ten years or so Peru has seen a significant uptick in fair trade and organic cooperative development, mostly due to shared work done by small coffee farmers and coffee importers excited about Peru’s potential.  In the cup we taste deep chocolate and toffee properly balanced by juicy, fruit notes like berries and citrus.
