NOTES : Chocolate, Caremelo, Dulce
PRODUCERS: 126 Women producers
With over 50 years in the market, CLAC La Florida began in 1966 after decades of abuse from local buyers, who had a strong price monopoly in the region. It was one of the first cooperatives in Peru to sell directly to Europe without brokers or local intermediaries. It was also one of the first Peruvian coops to go to international fairs and to become Faitrade certified. La Florida has always invested premiums in the community, developing roads, power networks, schools and health centres. Focused on traceability, La Florida can offer lots separated by village and by farm.
[This lot is produced exclusevely by the 126 women who are members of La Florida]
“We had stable weather this year and we can see that the quality of the coffees is coming out nicely. It’s summer and we have some rain, which is helping with the even maturation of the cherries. Though we had inconveniences in April because of COVID, with no access to logistical services, now things are getting back to normal. Instead of having a big collection point in Pichanaki, where we are based, we opened several small points in the countryside, making it easier for the producers to deliver the coffee. - Lenides, Quality Control ”

Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Florida
Un grupo de 50 productores de café a pequeña escala de la región de Chanchamayo - Perú, se reunieron en 1966 para formar la Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Florida (CAC La Florida) con el fin de evitar a los intermediarios locales. Sus esfuerzos han traído la educación tan necesaria, la infraestructura, el crédito y la restauración del medio ambiente a este remoto rincón de la selva peruana. Desde 1966, la organización ha crecido hasta incluir a 984 miembros en su punto máximo. Estos beneficios hacen hincapié en el desarrollo socio-económico de sus miembros y la protección del medio ambiente. Sus programas educativos ofrecen formación para los miembros, talleres sobre las sesiones de producción y gestión de café para los jóvenes de la comunidad. Esto incluye el acceso a las nuevas bibliotecas, jardines escolares y uniformes.

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
