A rich history of coffee cultivation in Peru has resulted in this incredibly clean and complex offering. The organic and sustainable practices at Cenfrocafe co-operative are a key part of the success of the co-op and its growers. Established in 1999 with 11 Associations and 2200 grower members, Cenfrocafe is a co-operative with 2400 members. The average farm size of a member is 4-10 hectares and the area has only been developed in the last 30 years. The farmers use organic compost and Guano de Isla as well as other organic fertilizers. This is bird guano mined from an island off the coast. It is strong organic fertilizer which adds micronutrients and promotes tree health. Cenfrocafe co-operative built its operations around cupping and sound lot separation and preparation. Their cuppers were among the first to get Q-certified in Peru, but more importantly maintained the discipline and art of cupping over the years. The stability of the 
membership of this co-op even in volatile markets is a testament to their service to the growers.
