Coffee Story:

This coffee is sourced by way of the Norandino Cooperative. Norandino is an umbrella organization, established in 2005. Norandino’s main goal is to support a sustainable coffee supply from three coffee producing coops in the northern regions of Peru. The contributing producing cooperatives to Norandino include approximately 7,000 members, cultivating 25,000 acres of coffee.

Coffee producers receive training and technical assistance in land management, irrigation, organic farming, productivity and quality control, and reforestation programs. Norandino has also promoted commercial diversification projects, further complementing improvements of member’s quality of life by way of more steady income.

The Fair Trade premium dollars this umbrella organization has received from the sale of their coffee has been life changing. The coops most recent use of premium dollars was ear marked for productivity, quality and community. Access to agricultural inputs such as organic fertilizer, investment in technical assistance, technical farm training and improved infrastructure including a new coffee storage area and updated processing facility equipment have all been invested in this past year. At the community level, investment in the future of coop member’s children is also a part of the plan. Premium dollars funded 6 member’s children to complete professional level internships.

Fair Trade organic Peruvian coffee has been a mainstay on our menu for many years. We are privileged to have such a fine representation to offer you ~ Enjoy.
