Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios “Café del Valle” Amazonas was formed in 2019. Since then, they have tirelessly pursued their goals of becoming the foremost coffee supplier in the Amazonas region. Their partnership with Valley Coffee Trading S.A.C. enables them to market their coffee at sustainable rates and support the socioeconomic improvement of their members.
Producers receive technical assistant and agricultural outreach from the cooperative. Members are supported so they can increase productivity and quality in sustainable ways.
Farmers in Peru usually process their coffee on their own farms using the Fully washed method. Cherry is usually pulped, fermented and dried in the sun. Traditionally, smaller farmers would use tarps laid on the ground or under the roof of their homes. Increasingly, cooperatives are establishing centralized drying facilities – usually raised beds or drying sheds where members are encouraged to dry their parchment. Some farmers are beginning to adopt these practices on their own farms, and drying greenhouses and parabolic beds are becoming more common as farmers pivot towards specialty markets.
After drying, coffee will then be sold in parchment to the cooperative. A quality control team monitors all incoming coffees at the warehouse and ensures consistency and quality.
