Peru Puno San Jorge
Located in the Sandia Valley of Puno, Peru’s southernmost province, San Jorge is one of eight cooperatives that make up the Central Agricultural Cooperative of the Sandia Valley (CECOVASA), which oversees a membership of 4,700 farmers. As most of the farms are on the smaller side, nearly all of the coffee is picked by the farmers themselves, sometimes with the help of neighbors. Imagine that your favorite soda fountain and chocolate shop became best friends and then shrank down to a teeny-tiny size so that they could fit inside your coffee mug. Pretty sweet, right?
