Sometimes when you brew up a mug of coffee, you want comfort in a cup. This Peru El Palto coffee delivers just that, with warming notes of toffee, praline, and malt followed by roasted pecan and nectarine.
About Smallholder producers of Peru
In 2003, 35 coffee smallholder farmers decided to combine forces in order to have enough coffee to export. A short 14 years later, Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP) is 189 members strong and their collective holdings span 549 hectares. Over 20% of the growers are women, and women serve on El Palto’s board of directors as well.
El Palto farmers live in “Selva Alta,” an ecosystem that includes dense, humid forests, so their coffees are organically grown under a the canopy of native forest. All their coffees are also Fair Trade Certified. The mission of the co-op is to consistently produce specialty coffee of the highest quality, bringing reliable income to the families and improved community infrastructures.
