Peru, CENFROCAFE UTZ
Approximately 3,000 farming families are part of the Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE), a cooperative that offers members access to training, financing and agronomy advice aimed at increasing yields and quality-with the aim of increasing producers' earnings.
The cooperative also gives each member extraordinarily more power and market reach than each would have alone. And, its quality improvements have made it a top finalist in national and international quality competitions.
Producers de-pulp, wash and dry coffees at home, on raised beds in solar greenhouses-as well as, when space becomes scarce, in attics, in garage lofts and even on screens in the eves of their homes-and then deliver the coffee as parchment to the cooperative's mill. In cases where a coffee is delivered at more than 12 percent humidity, coffees are further dried on patios.
Citrus, brioche; juicy, medium acidity
