Peru: Export Quality

Currently, coffee is grown in 14 regions of Peru. The main producers are San Martín, Junín, Cajamarca, and Amazonas, followed by Huánuco, Pasco, Cusco, Ayacucho, Piura, and Puno, and over 223,000 families are dedicated to its production nationwide. The provinces of La Convención (Cusco), Jaén, and San Ignacio (Cajamarca) are recognized as the main producing areas of the best and most awarded specialty coffees.

Thanks to the different ecological floors of the country, coffee can be cultivated from 600 to 1,800 meters above sea level. In particular, the jungle brow provides an ideal space for its cultivation, with 75% of coffee plantations located more than 1,000 meters above sea level and specialty coffees grown at altitudes above 1,200 meters.

28% of Peru’s coffee exports go to the United States, and it has a prominent presence in European countries such as Germany, Belgium, Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. Likewise, Peru is the second-largest producer of organic coffee globally thanks to its commitment to sustainability and responsible agriculture.

Peru’s participation in the Specialty Coffee Expo 2024 promises to be a unique opportunity to strengthen commercial ties and promote the quality and sustainability of the Peruvian coffee industry in the U.S. market.
