Brazilian - Brazil is responsible for about a third of all coffee, making Brazil by far the world's largest producer, a position the country
has held for the last 150 years. Back in 1727, Lt. Col. Francisco de Mello Palheta, who was sent by the Portuguese Government to
French Guiana under the ruse of settling a border dispute, smuggled coffee plants out and brought them back to his home in Brazil. By
1800, coffee had spread throughout the country. Coffee plantations, covering some 10,000 square miles, are mainly located in the
southeastern states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná where the environment and climate provide ideal growing conditions.

chocolate. In the land of dense rain forests and mountainous landscapes is where this Fair-Trade Organic Peru coffee gets its
characteristics. The Amazon region of northeast Peru produces some of the most prized coffees in the world.
The underdog to the South America coffees growing countries, Peruvian coffee exportation accounts for just over two-percent of the
global coffee supply. Traditionally cultivated and shade grown are some attributes to the art of growing coffee in the region.
From May to September, farmers pick ripe cherries and carry them to hand pulpers and wooden fermentation tanks. This tradition of
micro-wet-milling has protected Peru’s water resources from the devastating effects of river polluting pulping factories. Most farmers are
found hiking their beans by foot or mule to the nearest town. Due to the help of Fair Trade, USA and other Organic certifying agencies,
Peru has seen stimulated growth in its coffee production and is one of the world’s top organic producers and has some of the most
exceptional and vivacious coffees among the coffee world. Our Fair Trade Organic Peru coffee is fully washed and sun dried to help
achieve the deep and unique taste that is Peru coffee.
