Alianza CAFE works in the regions of Peru where Alternative Development emerges as an opportunity for growers who previously engaged in illicit farming. Now, these coffee families have the opportunity to develop productively with the cultivation and production of coffee.
Thus, CAFE Alliance has decentralized regional offices in Tingo María (Huánuco), Tocache and Moyobamba (San Martín) and a central office in Lima, from where the project is coordinated at the national level.
Case studiesMany CAFE Alliance participants have changed their vision of coffee production and have improved their lives and that of their families. Do you want to meet them?
Tingo Maria City is the capital of Leoncio Prado province, located at the Huanuco region. The climate is warm and humid, with an average annual temperature of 24 C and is located at 647 meters above sea level. Precipitation occurs with greater intensity between the months of December until April and Tingo Maria is considered one of the most frequent rainy areas in Peru. It is said that this area was one of the first regions of the country to receive on its surface the first coffee beans from Central America.
These special characteristics make the Tingo Maria soil ideal for the cultivation of Catimor, Caturra and Bourbon varieties, all varieties of the Arabica type, coffee produced in Peru.
The city of Tocache is located in a province of the same name in the San Martín region. Its climate is tropical, humid and warm most of the year and receives a lot of rainfall, being a characteristic area due to its excess humidity. This city full of waterfalls was an area plagued by drug trafficking and terrorism until the 1990s. Thanks to the thrust of its people and the political support of the state, it is now a thriving growing area, part of the Alternative Development Zone of Peru.
Tocache soils are perfect for growing and producing Catimor, Caturra and Bourbon coffee varieties.
The famous “City of Orchids” is the capital of the homonymous province, located in the San Martin region. It is located at 860 meters above sea level, its climate is tropical and it has an average temperature of 22 C throughout the year.
Moyobamba owns 10% of all the orchid species in the world, with about 3500 species in total, that is why every year in Moyobamba the “Orchid Festival” is held, usually at the end of October.
Moyobamba soils are excellent for growing and producing coffee in its Catimor, Caturra and Bourbon varieties.
