Good Peruvian coffee has many of the delicate high notes of quality Central Americans, due to the high elevation and cooler climate of the Andes, while still retaining a firmly South American profile overall. If you like a yummy tasting medium roast, this one is for you! (Our best selling medium roast)

“This region depends on the coffee industry for its livelihood. Thanks to Fair Trade, our standard of living has substantially improved, and the whole community has benefited from the programs we have implemented. I especially want to thank everyone who supports Fair Trade. With their support, a star twinkles in our lives and leads us to a promising future.” — Miguel Trigoso, APARM Marketing Manager

Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios Rodríguez de Mendoza (APARM) is a coffee cooperative located in the Amazonas region of northeastern Peru. APARM was founded in 1990 by a small group of coffee farmers who hoped to achieve a higher standard of living by working together. Before this time they received extremely low prices for their coffee. Since becoming Fair Trade certified by Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO) in 1998, the co-op has been able to export all of its coffee directly instead of through a third party.
