The Peru Coffee

The taste of Peruvian coffee is mostly pure and mild, with a sweet taste and relatively high alcohol thickness. In the past, some people thought that Peruvian coffee lacked complexity, but now more and more coffee tastes unique and juicy.

Coffee producing areas and characteristics

Peru is located in the west of South America, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and bordered by Brazil, Colombia, and Bolivia, several of South America's leading coffee producing countries. Due to the diverse geography and climate of the producing region, Peru produces a wide range of coffee varieties.

As one of the largest exporters of organic and fair trade coffee in the world, coffee exports account for a significantly high proportion of Peru's agricultural production.

Most small coffee farmers in Peru only own about two hectares of small agricultural land; Because the poor are unable to buy chemical fertilizers or pesticides, almost all of them are organic farming, and their output is processed and sold through the form of cooperatives.

Coffee came to Peru between 1740 and 1760. Although the climate in the territory is quite suitable for large-scale coffee planting, in the first 100 years of its introduction, all coffee was consumed locally. It was not until 1887 that Peruvian coffee began to be exported to Germany and England.

In the 1900s, the Peruvian government had to repay 2 million hectares of land in the central part of the country due to arrears of loans to the British government, one quarter of which was converted into plantations, including coffee. Many immigrants came to work here from the Highlands, some of whom eventually owned land. Others bought the land after the British left Peru.

Unfortunately, the development of the coffee industry was hindered by the laws implemented by the government in the 1970s. When the government no longer supported the coffee industry, not only did the coffee industry fall into chaos, but it was further damaged by the establishment of the Communist Party because guerrillas destroyed agricultural land everywhere and drove farmers out of their homes. help you brew delicious coffee.

The gap left by Peru's coffee industry has been filled by non-governmental organizations in recent years, such as the fair trade organization; Today, most Peruvian coffee has fair trade certification. More and more land is also used to grow coffee: 62000 hectares in 1980 and 95000 hectares now.

Peru has now become one of the world's largest coffee producers.
