Farm Info

The 350 producer members of the Cooperativa Agraia Juan Marco El Palto (JUMARP) grow coffee on their farms in the highlands of the Uctucamba province in the Amazonas region of northern Peru. Along with three other cooperatives in Amazonas and neighboring Cajamarca, JUMARP is part of the Café Selva Norte project to convert degraded lands to agroforestry farming methods that capture carbon and generate carbon credits.

The carbon sequestered by trees intercropped with coffee offsets the emissions of the coffee’s transport from farm to the Pacific port in Paita. The offset is verified, recorded, and shared. Eligible producers receive microcredits to make the conversion to agroforestry and reverse land degradation from the traditional slash-and-burn. Fairtrade and Organic certifications further confirm JUMARP’s investments in coffee production systems designed for long term health of people and planet. Read more about JUMARP.
