Check out Cepicafe for Peruvian beans. Quality is excellent - just about to get some myself - and they are certified Fairtrade and organic I believe. If you need a contact let me know and I will send you the details.
Currently looking for a supplier of Peruvian beans too, much appreciate if you could send me contact details.
Try Santiago Paz at santiagonorandinoatyahoo.es - that is who I have been dealing with. I've just ordered 500kg from them as the test samples they sent were very interesting.
Brilliant will do, many thanks

Thanks for this prospect. I would like to purchase a small sample from you if possible.
hi from peru steve. i agree with duffy cepicafe has good quality. i'm in tingo maria right now and the naranjillo coop has organic and fair trade cert. to the north in tarapoto acopagro has cert i believe. and there is probably someone with organic cert in the cusco growing area. most of the beans from naranjillo and acopagro are ccn-51 with some other stuff mixed in. piura has better genetics, cusco i'm not sure.
what volume are you looking for?
quality specs? (fermentation level, etc), do you care about genetics?
any other specs?
all fermented and sun dried beans in peru will have gone over 50C in post-harvest, if thats a dq then peru will not be for you. many of the large coops buy beans at 9-12% humidity and finsh drying in a gas dryer, which may affect you as a raw producer. i know most of the people in the industry here if you want to talk to any of them let me know i can connect you, directly or through appcacao or the ag ministry.
We are looking for about 200KG, 90% fermented.
We are most interested in nibs. The 50C is not necessarily a deal killer. We would need to inspect a sample.
If you could connect me to a good contact, I would greatly appreciate it!
