Peru

Peruvian Coffees Although coffee arrived in Peru relatively early - in the mid-1700s - it was not grown for commercial export until almost the 20th century, with increasing demand from Europe and a significant decrease in coffee production in Indonesia. In the early 1900s, the British government took possession of around 2 million hectares of land from the Peruvian government as payment on a defaulted loan, and much of this land became British-owned coffee plantations. The country has a remarkable number of certified organic coffees, as well as Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certified coffees. Peru is the largest exporter of organic Arabica coffee globally. With extremely high altitudes and fertile soils, the country's smallholder farmers also produce some impressive specialty coffees. As of the 2010s, Peru is a leading producer of Arabica coffee, often ranked fifth in the world production and export of Arabica. The Profile of Peruvian Coffees Peruvian coffees are highly prized for their creamy feel and smooth citrus notes. Caramel notes often appear in the finish. Peruvian coffees are highly appreciated for their subtle, clean and aromatic character. They are increasingly being appreciated as single-origin coffees, with the best ones displaying a unique sweet vanilla note. Organics from small farms in northern Peru
