COFFEE PROJECT PERU - ASOCIACION CAFÉ DEL FUTURO

On Friday, October 1st we celebrate "International Coffee Day". We want to use this day to recognize the hard work of the people along the coffee value chain and make coffee to what we love.


To give something back to the people who are at the very beginning of the value chain, we would like to introduce you to our project coffees from Peru.


Why do we want to help?


In the past decades, the Jaén region in Peru has become a monoculture of coffee, and local communities now strongly rely on food from other regions.

With the governmental restrictions in place to prevent further COVID-19 contagions, costs for transportation and prices of available goods have increased. Since the pandemic, many families struggle with food security, decreasing livelihood.


Who requires help?


This also affected many of the farmers from the Asociación Café del Futuro. The association was founded in 2007 and stands for high-quality coffee with selected varieties and a strong focus on certified coffee. The farmers mainly grow varieties such asCaturra, Bourbon, and Mundo Novo, which flourish well in the region between the provinces of Jaén and San Ignacio.


We have a close partnership with the Asociación Café del Futuro which we visited in 2019 and have been sourcing coffees from them ever since.


How can we help?


With your support, we want to build a sustainable solution that improves the livelihood and food sovereignty of 105 coffee-producing families.


With the purchase of one of the three qualities from the Asociación Café del Futuro, you support the implementation of home vegetable gardens to both increase food security and promote diversified agricultural practices. Each coffee-producing family will receive 10 raised beds of 7.5 square meters as well as seeds of the 10 most sown vegetables in the area and tools and know-how.


What are the project coffees?


There are three project coffees from the Asociación Café del Futuro:

The coffees will arrive in Hamburg by approx. end of October. If you have any questions, we are more than happy to help!
