WHAT I DRINK
This coffee from Peru, fair trade and organic, is grown at high altitudes of 1000 to 1800 m. It offers a good balance between a fine acidity, a moderate body and a nice note of red fruits.
WHAT I STAND FOR
A sustainable agriculture in the Amazonian forest
The Amazonian foothills of the Peruvian Andes are home to a high altitude rainforest that is ideal for growing coffee. SOL Y CAFÉ is a leader in innovative agricultural practices.
The motto of the SOL Y CAFE cooperative is "Soy Calidad, Soy Familia". Literally, they are a family. Every employee of the cooperative is either a producer himself or has direct family ties to one of the 1,200 member producers. This explains its great transparency and its approach to quality in order to enhance its terroir. The cooperative conducts in-depth research on organic fertilizers, agro-forestry cultivation methods and local plant material in order to propagate the most aromatic and robust varieties in nurseries. A dynamic that we support with a remunerative price.
The coffee also comes from the NORANDINO and ORO VERDE cooperatives.
