Profit from coffee farming in Peru is often small; however families in the region have created a living for themselves and their families, relying almost solely upon coffee for income. In the region, much of the drive to produce quality can be seen via the level of attention to processing. Varieties are selected to suit the climate and produce an excellent cup profile. Sharing varieties between farms or buying new varieties from other parts of the country then testing their quality is key as well as renovation techniques.
