Peru Coffee 

Peru is the 10th largest exporter of coffee and much of the exports are produced and cultivated by coops. Poor infrastructure in the country has attracted development groups which have helped many farms gain fair trade and organic certifications. The three largest production regions are on the eastern slope of the Andes: San Martin Region, the Amazonas and the Chanchamayo.  It is the fifth largest exporter of Arabica beans in the world and while Peru is one of the more often-forgotten coffees, this doesn’t take away from the quality of beans.
