Peru FTO APESI is sourced from family owned farms organized around Agraria de Productores Ecologicos San Ignacio LTDA (APESI), which was established in 2011 to support organic coffee producers in the region of Cajamarca, Peru.
APESI provides training and financing aimed at improving coffee quality and yields to increase farmer earnings. Members of APESI are also investing in other businesses like honey production, fish farms, and citrus groves to diversify sources of income during the thin months when there is no income from coffee production.
