The coffee regions in Peru are spread across the north, the center and the south of the country. This coffee comes from the north, more specifically from the Cajamarca region and the Jaén province. The city of Jaén bears the name of the province and is considered the coffee center in the region.
The coffee is cultivated by smallholder farmers with an average of 2-5 hectares of land. The coffee grows at altitudes of around 1,500 masl before it is harvested by hand and wet processed.
