The coffee comes from the Cajamarca region in the northwest of Peru and has been grown there organically.
The CASIL cooperative was founded in 1966 and today it has about 240 members. The farms on which the coffee is grown are located at 1,600 to 1,800 metres above sea level. The altitude, temperatures between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius as well as the loamy soils offer ideal natural conditions for the cultivation of strong and very balanced coffees.
The cooperative gives the farmers access to knowledge, infrastructure and equipment to produce an ecological coffee of high quality and thus achieve higher prices for the coffee.
