We have been closely linked to Peru since 2013. Our main partner is the cooperative Aproeco in Moyobamba. From the approximately 300 farmers we source cooperative lots (also BIO-certified) and microlots. We have established further partnerships with the cooperative Oro Verde in Lamas and a group of committed coffee farmers in Monzón. Together with the cooperative Divisoria in Tingo Maria, we help coffee farmers in Monzón to create good alternatives to coca cultivation with speciality coffees. Since 2020, we have also been working with the young farmer Germán Carranza in the state of Amazonas, helping him to distribute his exceptional coffees. Due to our long-standing commitment we continually understand the problems of Peruvian coffee farmers better and better. This is why Peru is where we carry out the main part of our voluntary work with our NGO Qoffee Qulture e.V.
It is typical for our partners in Peru that they cultivate coffee on small fincas (1-3 hectares), live in subsistence as much as possible and that they know and protect their habitat, the mountain rainforest.
We have been working with our partners Zanya Coffee in Lang Biang an Mr. Toi in Bao Loc since 2020. Marian and Lim from Zanya are pioneers in the world’s second largest coffee-producing country by growing and marketing high-quality Arabica coffees. With their exotic microlots, they make the rare enjoyment of Vietnamese specialty coffees possible. In Bao Loc we work with our partners from Future Coffee Farm, who produce Fine Robustas in sophisticated processes.
The family producing Zanya Coffee belong to the K’Ho people, an ethnic minority with its own language and culture in Vietnam. The ancestors of the K’Ho once lived from hunting, rice cultivation and traditional textile production. Today, most K’Ho practice agriculture and maintain a close relationship with nature. In their family communities they are able to produce top-quality coffee based on a division of labour.
