Peru Condor Coffee

In Peru, it is quite common for some manufacturers to buy certified coffee much cheaper than the price of the market because they then lower the bill by purchasing a larger volume of non-certified coffee. Difficult for producers to enhance their production and certification.

It is in this context that Cocora obviously chose to source this coffee directly from Coopagro, which allows us to fairly compensate producers. Their supplier buys this coffee at a fixed price, taking into account the cost of producing coffee. No stock market, no speculation. Simple, direct, traceable and sustainable. This coffee is for us a way to change, if only a little, the practices of the industry in order to embody, through our actions, the change that we want for the specialty coffee sector.
This coffee is a certified organic blend, it is produced from the coffees of six small farms, called "cafetales". The coffees are produced from the catimor, caturra, typica and pache varieties, a mutation of Typica. Its name pays homage to the majestic Andean Condor.

In the Cajamarca region, there are several micro-regions, this coffee comes from the Huabal region.

The land of Huabal is located in the province of Jaén in the Cajamarca region, in the extreme north of Peru near the Ecuadorian border. Coffee producers often have plots of less than 2 hectares. The low volumes of coffee produced make it impossible to export coffee as an independent producer. As a result, the producers have united to form a cooperative to export. This coffee includes the production of 6 coffee growers in the area, located at high altitude. Prepared by the producers themselves, the coffee is sold to the cooperative in parchments, then they made the parchment processing and sorting.
