The early records of coffee plantations in Peru are from the late 18th century, reaching the Chanchamayo region in the early 19th century. The name of the region is derived from the river Chanchamayu which originates in the Andes Mountain Range. Peruvian coffee grows in the Andean valleys and high jungle, where the fertile soil, the altitude and the moisture of the region makes it a favorable area to grow coffee. The coffee is grown in the shade of species native to the region, this way the farmers ensure the maintenance and regeneration of indigenous biodiversity. The coffee is then harvested completely by hand.
