While we wait for our new crop of Andes Gold to arrive we have a special coffee to take its place. Grown in the same area as our normal Peru, but from a different cooperative we are sure you will love.


COOPERATIVA AGRARIA FRONTERA SAN IGNACIO LTDA., situated in San Ignacio, Cajamarca Region – Peru, was officially founded on June 25, 1969 and at present has 330 partners small-growers organized in 14 committees, with production zones located in the districts of San Ignacio, Namballe and San Jose de Lourdes in Cajamarca Region at North Eastern Peru. The topography of the province is basically made by the buttresses of the western and eastern mountain ranges of the Andes and the valleys that descend from these buttresses to the Amazon basin. The coffee is grown at altitudes ranging from 1000 to 1800 meters above sea level. The production is about 28,000 quintals of coffee and 25% is grown by women farmers.

The logo is the Spectacled Bear (Tremarctos ornatus), which is an endangered animal that lives in the forest called “The Chaupe”, around which many of our growers have their organic farms. This appreciated bear acts as a pollinator carrying the pollen of several plants in his thick hair. Furthermore, when the bear finds a fruit tree often rises and rests in the branches, opening spaces in the upper levels of forest and providing the necessary light for germination and growth of species in the low forest. Protecting the fauna and flora of this region will support the ecological balance.
