The coffee story

Valentín Carranza and his family are like many coffee farmers families, dedicated to producing good quality coffee. His farm is located on the heights of the hamlet called Gracias A Dios, where varieties such as tipica, geisha, bourbon among others are grown. Valentin calls his plot "Heart" because it is the engine that drives the work of a better tomorrow and the structure of the farm is shaped like a heart. The work of this family is reflected in obtaining an excellent coffee with very good sensory attributes.

Back the Café Selva Norte Project and offset the carbon emissions of your container

Jumarp is a member of the Café Selva Norte (CSN) Project, developed and implemented in partnership with Ecotierra. This agroforestry project aims to double the income of coffee producers by increasing their yields whilst promoting sustainable farming practices. Through CSN, Ecotierra funds Jumarp so the cooperative can provide microcredit at low-interest rates to farmers, technical assistance and seedlings.

Roasters can support the project by adding the ElevaFinca premium - USD 0,05/lb - when buying from Jumarp. When a roaster adds the premium, ElevaFinca (Ecotierra’s commercial arm) produces a tailored traceability report with detailed information about the production of the coffee purchased. This is collected via the Minka database, a big source of information that roasters can use to measure their impact. ElevaFinca also offsets the carbon emissions of all containers from their coops and includes a Carbon Offset Certificate. The carbon credits are retired from the Madre de Dios Amazon REDD project.  

Well-managed agroforestry system implemented with support of Ecotierra


The CSN project is a huge effort to tackle deforestation and land degradation in the country. According to Ecotierra, 15% of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by deforestation and the number one cause is migratory agricultural practice. This is still employed by a large number of Peruvian farmers for both annual and perennial crops including coffee.

In 2013, when the leaf rust crisis hit the country, most farmers were advised to cut down their shade trees. This would allow air to circulate more freely in the plantation, prevent excessive humidity and the spread of the fungus. However, growing coffee under the full sun requires more use of inputs, which producers couldn’t afford. Already struggling due to the roya, the yields of coffee trees continued to decline, putting farmers’ livelihoods at risk.

In order to produce more, farmers will migrate from one part of their plot to another or will replace their perennial crops with annuals such as corn. Before doing so, they burn the soil to clean it, resulting in more acidic soil. Without shade trees, the soil is also unprotected against heavy rains, which wash nutrients away - and there is no organic matter coming from trees to replace them. Impoverished land forces farmers to use new plots, sometimes virgin forest ones.

The project started in 2019 and has already provided nearly half a million US dollars in microcredit loans to growers to aid in their transition to sustainable agroforestry, impacting around 300 farmers and more than 300 hectares. CSN is a 15-years initiative aimed at supporting thousands of farmers over the long term. The project also includes the construction of a dry mill and quality lab for the cooperatives involved and the sales of carbon credits from smallholders.
