ORGANIC PERU APROCASSI
PERU APROCASSI OG is a cooperative of small holder coffee farmers in this far-flung area of Northern Peru, with its breathtaking landscapes, it is a mecca for growing organic coffee. Aprocassi was founded in 2000 and they currently have 505 members, 68 of whom are women. Our lots come exclusively from these women producer members. Their farms range from an average size of 2-4 Hectares sitting between 1200-1600 meters. They grow a mix of Caturra, Catuai, Pache, Typica, and Catimor Arabica varieties.
Organic Peru Aprocassi is part of our Making Coffee Matter program. Our $10,000 donation supports GROUNDS FOR HEALTH®, a non-profit organization specialized in bringing women’s health programs to communities like the small holder coffee farmers of Northern Peru, whose female cooperative members supply us with this certified Organic coffee.
