Peru Jaén Palla Peña Panchia Natural- Coffee production came to Peru in the 1700s. There are more than 110,000 coffee growers in Peru. The average land-holding farmer lives on two or three hectares, hours away from the comforts of electricity and running water. Peru is quickly building a global reputation for producing traditionally cultivated, shade grown, high quality Arabica beans. Peruvian coffee farmers' landholdings are small, and the country's typical micro-wet-milling operation is even smaller. Peru has a unique topography and a variety of micro-climates. From May to September, farmers pick ripe cherries and carry them to hand pulpers and wooden fermentation tanks. This tradition of micro-wet-milling has protected Peru's water resources from the devastating effects of river-polluting pulping factories. After processing their coffee, most farmers hike their beans by foot into the nearest town—a thirty minutes to eight hours trip. On Saturdays, the plaza of the closest town becomes a buying and selling station for the surrounding remote coffee growers. Farmers sell their coffee and buy goods for their homes before heading back up the mountainous foot trails.
