Bean to Cup: Sustainably Sourced
The fair trade and organic certified crop comes from small holder farms grown 5,200 feet above sea level. From there, the brewing process starts with handpicked cherries, which go through a natural method known as micro-wet-milling. The tradition of micro-wet-milling protects Peru’s water resources from the devastating effects of river-polluting pulping factories. The cherries are transformed into high-quality coffee beans, to bring you this exceptionally smooth variety. Peru Amazonas coffee is sustainably sourced to maintain both an organic and fair trade standard of distinction.
This distinction comes from the Fair Trade Global Certification, which uses traceability to get farmers higher wages, allowing them to increase standard of living and invest in quality. These premiums are then used by the cooperative of farmers as needed for equipment, tools, and other basic necessities that are needed on a daily basis.
This program also puts farmers in direct contact with importers, which creates long-term sustainability. In addition, organic coffee is coffee produced without the aid of artificial chemical substances, such as certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides.
