Description

The Cooperative

CENFROCAFE was founded in 1999 with 220 small-scale coffee farmers in eleven community-based associations. Nearly fifteen years after their founding, CENFROCAFE, now based out of Jaen, serves more than 2,000 farmer members in local associations spanning across twelve districts within the lush Cajamarca region.

From technical assistance and quality control workshops for their farmers, to economic and leadership training for the young people in their rural communities, CENFROCAFE works not only to support the commercial endeavors of its members – but also to facilitate the development of their communities as a whole. The CENFROCAFE financial team provides short-term credit that help farmers cover the front-end costs of the harvest and materials in the coffee production.

Most coffee packaging comes with a major environmental footprint. Plastic + foil-lined bags (used extensively in specialty coffee & tea) cannot be recycled and last for years in landfills ...

Merchants of Green Coffee has a strict ‘no plastic policy’ and we have been selling our coffees in what we like to call “premium brown bags” for over 25 years. (And we operate almost 100% plastic-free ... packaging always being an area for improvement)

Our "premium brown bags" are composed of 100% natural materials: post-consumer kraft paper, PLA (corn-based) lining, and a tin-tie. To recycle: Remove the tin-tie and recycle the bag.

A label/seal is required to ensure our coffees are fresh, traceable, and free from tampering. Our standard Merchants’ label/seal is composed of paper and adhesive, and can be recycled along with the bag.
