Peruvian coffee is almost exlusively arabica, with some 70 percent being of the typica variety, 20 percent caturra, and 10 percent other varieties. The vast majority of these coffees are grown by smallholder farmers in high-altitude locations in naturally shade-protected conditions, where it is typically hand-picked and sun-dried. 

 

Peru remains a leading producer of organic coffee. Many smallholders produce organic, shade-grown coffee because they choose not to use fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
