Agroindustrial Tropicals Cooperative

Agroindustrial Tropicals Cooperative

The Story

Amokka® has through the years been working with several cooperatives in Pichanaqui region, previously Aproselva and Selva Central, but when a lot of core farmers left these Cooperatives to form Agroindustrial Tropicals we followed suit.

2023 is first of hopefully many years of fruitful partnership.

The Coffee

The Chanchamayo region is in the central part of Peru, in the high-altitude Andean mountains, with ideal coffee-growing conditions. The area is known for its rich, fertile soil and consistent temperatures, which contribute to the unique flavour profile of its coffee.

Coffee from Chanchamayo is typically produced using the washed method, which involves removing the skin and mucilage from the coffee cherry before drying. This results in a clean, bright flavour profile with high acidity and a medium to light body. The coffee is also known for its floral and fruit notes, with some typical flavour notes including citrus, bergamot, and stone fruit.

Most coffee in Chanchamayo is grown in small, family-owned farms, with many producers focused on organic and sustainable agriculture practices. The coffee is typically shade-grown, which helps to conserve the region's biodiversity and preserve its natural ecosystem.
