The Cenfrocafe cooperative was established in 2005 and is located in northern Peru, not far from the Ecuadorian border. With the support of other cooperatives, the goal was to create a base for the many small coffee producers in the mountainous terrain surrounding the city of Jaén.
The cooperative now has some 2,500 members. In 2010, the cooperative introduced a wide-scale quality improvement program: workshops were held, technical and agricultural advisors were trained. Today, Cenfrocafe has taken on a leading role in the cultivation of high-quality organic coffee.
