Peru takes coffee seriously in both its dedication to sustainable farming and to consistently producing an outstanding cup. This coffee is valued both in both quality and taste. We can look forward to an above-average body along with sweet caramel, milk chocolate, and cherry notes.
Las Damas de San Ignacio is organic and fair trade, and hails from the COOPFASI co-op that began in 1969 for the purpose of focusing on gender equity in coffee farming. In 2016, the co-op designed a program so that women can now receive financial loans to help improve the quality of their lives through indoor plumbing (kitchens, bathrooms), and better conditions for livestock and other farming practices. They have also created a community computer lab to help bridge the digital divide.
