The best coffee farmers in Monzón want to show their face: For coffee instead of coca. For this lot, the Divisoria cooperative in Tingo Maria, Peru, has bought green coffee for cumpa from the coffee farmers in Monzón. The people in this area of Peru have been through hard times. After almost 3 decades of terror, narcos and coca, what they want most is peace. But Monzón is still known mainly for coca. We are now helping to change that.
Together with the coffee farmers of Monzón, the cooperative Divisoria, the Peruvian anti-drug organisation Devida and the NGO Tecnoserve, we are creating this new cooperative lot. We bring the speciality coffees from Monzón to the speciality roasters and spare no effort to support the farmers along the way. In this way, we are helping them to move out of the informal economy and into a more peaceful future.
