CENFROCAFE - Central Fronteriza Del Norte De Cafetaleros

In 1999, 11 organizations in the northern central region of Peru came together to form the Central Fronteriza Del Norte De Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE). They started with 220 producers, cultivating an estimated 9,000 quintals of coffee on about 760 hectares of land spread throughout the Cajamarca region.

CENFROCAFE became Fair Trade Certified in 2007 which enabled producers more direct access to markets and comprehensive information on world coffee prices. They have strengthened their relationship with international partners while creating a more transparent and just supply chain. Coffee from this cooperative regularly places in the top of Peruvian gourmet coffee competitions.
