For us at Matthew Algie, establishing and maintaining close trading relationships with our producer partners is extremely important.
We started sourcing coffee from the San Juan del Oro cooperative in southern Peru in 2006 and over the last five years we’ve been involved in two collaborative programmes. These have helped farmers to become more resilient to the impacts of climate change and supported them with rehabilitation following the coffee leaf rust outbreak.
By standing by the cooperative through some very tough times, Matthew Algie & partners have helped get the cooperative back to producing extraordinary coffee, even beyond what it used to be.
