Peru is well suited to coffee cultivation and production, given its high altitude and climate.

The development of Peru’s coffee growing industry has been greatly hindered by political unrest, poor policy and generally poor infrastructure. Farms are rarely located within an ideal distance to mills, meaning the coffee cherries must travel long distances, lowering the consistency and quality. The production and promotion of high quality coffee is growing in Peru, with 2017 representing the first year that a ‘Cup of Excellence’ competition was hosted in the country, with some coffees receiving very high scores and prices.
