Producer Profile: Located in the mountainous region of the Cajamarca province in Peru, the Cooperativa de Servicios Múltiples de San Ignacio, Cajamarca (APROCASSI) was founded in 2000 by small producers committed to earning a fair price for their coffee. APROCASSI continually seeks to produce high-quality coffee and improve its members’ standard of living. They regularly invest in programs that teach members how to improve coffee quality and productivity. Most families work on approximately seven hectares of land and grow a variety of products, including coffee in the higher elevations. Roughly 93% of their products are organic.
Since becoming Fair Trade Certified in 2001, the cooperative has financed several social and productivity programs using its Fair Trade premium. Portions of their premium are also used to pay producers immediately for their coffee sales.
Grind your coffee as close to brewing as possible. Match the grind of coffee to your brewing method. We recommend using 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for 6 ounces of water. Adjust the amount of water or coffee to achieve your desired strength.
