taste the soul of peru at booth G8 in Hall 2
With each drop, Peruvian coffee tells the story of the land where it grows and the hands that tend it.
With principal markets including the United States, Canada, Germany, Belgium, and Sweden, Peruvian coffee has displayed sustained growth around the world year after year. And in recent times, markets such as China, Colombia, Panama, Finland, and the United Arab Emirates have also shown tremendous interest in this product from Peru.
According to International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, Peru is recognized as the world’s third largest producer of organic coffee and occupies fourth place for production with sustainable certification—an advantageous position from which to promote specialty coffees.
In 2018, Peruvian coffee exports reached a total FOB value of 682 million dollars. Peru’s coffee exports consist of 80% conventional, 17% certified, and 3% specialty. Regardless of its certification, Peruvian specialty coffee registers high cupping scores under international quality assessment systems that comply with SCA parameters. Overall coffee production has been growing consistently, at an annual rate of 5% between 2015 and 2018.
In an effort coordinated with participants along the coffee production and marketing chain to consolidate and promote Peruvian coffee in its main markets and to enter new ones, the Peruvian Government recently created the Coffees of Peru brand. The campaign highlights the diversity, specialty and origin of the beverage, and positions Peru as a coffee growing country capable of producing the world’s finest and select varieties.
We draw on the product and talent of our producers and baristas. The proof: our coffees have achieved cupping scores of up to 91 points. These beverages are capable of transporting us to a world of unique flavors.
Peru’s coffee producing regions are Amazonas, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Huánuco, Junín, Pasco, Piura, Puno, and San Martín.
Peruvian coffee is exclusively of the Arabica type, of which 70% is typica and 20% is caturra, with the remaining 10% spread across other varieties.
Approximately 75% of Peruvian coffee grows at elevations of between 1,000 and 1,800 meters above sea level.
According to the International Coffee Organization (ICO), Peru is the 9th largest coffee producing country in the world, with 223,902 families dedicated to the industry.
