We traveled deep into the Amazonas region of Peru, to Rodriguez de Mendoza, where we found a very special organization- COOPARM- with whom we have built a relation based on shared values such as respect for the farmers and their work, strict organic agricultural practices, and the conservation of nature and the environment. The result of this partnership allows us to share with our clients a delicious, organic, specialty coffee from Peru. We are very proud of the work that is being done by small organic coffee farmers like the members of COOPARM, who unite in an effort to create meaningful opportunities for themselves and their communities. COOPARM is proud to be the only cooperative in Rodriguez de Mendoza, and its impact in the community and its members, through its technical assistance and education programs, is real. We are confident that our long term relation with COOPARM will contribute to the continuous growth and development of the Rodriguez de Mendoza community and its 519 farmer members, through the sustainable trade of organic coffee and other organic crops.
