Junin, Peru

Junin is a region in central Peru than is comprised of mostly mountains and jungle. The myriad of microclimates make this area ideal for growing coffee, with an average temperature hovering around 77°F degrees all year long.

Coffee production in Peru began more than a hundred years ago in the coastal lands of Pacasmayo. By late 19th century the construction of Peru's Central Railway had made coffee an important export crop. The railroad connected central Andean valleys with the coastal regions, making it economical for Peruvian coffee farmers to share their output with the world.

Most Peruvian coffee is grown without chemical pesticides, with farmers adhering to sustainable methods in growing and processing their coffee. The harvest season starts in April-May at the lower altitudes, reaching the highest altitudes around September.
