About This Coffee

San Ignacio in Northern Peru was among the first regions in the country to commercially cultivate coffee and coffee production is deeply woven in the regional culture, which celebrates the end of harvest with a wonderful festival. The region offers some of the best flavor profiles in Peru despite the challenge of producing in such remote highland area where coffee grows as high as 1900 meters. The small farmers still practice very traditional agronomy, though they have been introducing new methods as logistics and market access in the region improves.

History of Coffee in Peru

In 1897 the Belgian consul in Lima Peru wrote a report that “the coffee of Peru is delicious,” there was every reason to believe he was right. That same year, coffee exports had reached well over 20,000 bags, almost triple the 7,000 bags exported in 1894. But the turn of the century would prove to be a peak for that generation of Peruvian coffee exports. By 1913, exports had dropped back down to 9,000 bags. It would have been difficult to imagine on the eve of WWI that for most of the next 100 years Peru would be numbered among the top 10 coffee producing countries in the world, and even rise to the number 5 spot a few times. Looking back, it's not only easy to understand why, but easy to imagine increasing success in producing specialty coffee as a leading supplier of organic coffee. 

Growing Coffee in Peru

Peru is made up of a wide variety of landscapes, from long beaches to high mountains, from the desert to the largest rain forest. In the north, the second highest mountain rage, the Andes, goes through Cajamarca department and converges with the Amazon, creating complex and diverse orographies and microclimates. Cajamarca’s inter-Andean valleys have hosted coffee crops for more than 200 years and concentrate almost 43% of the total Peruvian coffee production, not only because of its vast lands but because of an ancient coffee tradition that goes back to the XVIII century, when the first coffee crops were brought in and started to be nurtured by the many generations of producers in the region. Coffee has been part of their lives for so long that their inhabitants’ experiences and learnings are inextricably linked to it.

A new coffee source for us

After many years with a well known Canadian coffee source, we were pointed to Pre-Umber. Their choice of all things coffee is very good, and their pricing is highly competitive, and their service is really excellent. We shall definitely return.
