Peru was divided into 24 departments before the 2002 addition of the Callao province and a collective renaming to regions. It is the Cajamarca region, home to many great coffee producing provinces that Sol Y Café members grow their coffee, from the slopes of the Andes mountain range to the Amazon rainforest and its diverse flora and fauna. There are many protected areas around, and this means production leans towards an organic methodology with the aim of preserving as much of the biodiversity as they can.
The cooperative has just over 1000 farmers spread across 12 districts in total. Their aim is to improve the living conditions of their members through the increase in productivity, production, and profitability as well as quality and the positioning of themselves within niche markets.
