Peru is now the 8th largest coffee producer in the world. It’s recognised for Arabica coffee that is shade-grown and traditionally cultivated, often processed in artisanal wet-mill facilities. Volcafe has been working with smallholders, cooperatives and estates in Peru since 2014 and San Martin de Pangoa represents one cooperative of around 700 farmers in this region. Located east of the Andes, Pangoa coffee is grown at an elevation of 820 to 1,650m.
Uganda: Cooperative Robusta
Coffee exports are an important part of Uganda’s economy being 27% of their total exports, around 3 million bags of coffee per year. Robusta coffee makes up 90% of the country’s total production and is farmed in a radius of 300 km around Lake Victoria at an altitude of 1,100 – 1,400. The majority of Ugandan robusta coffee is a natural coffee, using the drying method.
