Peru

Peru currently has one of the highest production levels of certified organic coffee. Though it's quality levels are thought to be inconsistent. Peru could be a great coffee producing country, given the right economic conditions. Unfortunately most coffees are grown in forest areas by peasant farmers. Local problems are extensive, guerrillas and drug traffickers coupled with high inflation has caused disruption to the economy. Peru has benefited however from roasters in many parts of the world finding that Colombian coffee was becoming too expensive. In the mid 1970's, Peru's production was around 1 million bags per year. This has increased steadily to an output of 3.5 million bags in 2006-2007. Private exporters work via intermediaries to obtain the coffees grown in the most remote regions. 'Exportadores de Cafe del Peru' works to improve quality and aims to instil a culture of quality amongst the 110,000 farmers. One of our most popular coffees to date in Smokey Barn is the 'Peru Cafe Femenino', which is from a group of female only farmers. This is not strictly a charity organisation, rather a group that was formed out of necessity. If you want to support the group, all you need to do is buy their coffee beans!
