Association of Yanesha indigenous producers, dedicated to sustainable coffee production in Peru.

Bio:

The Association of Sustainable Yanesha Producers (APSY) has been managing their coffee farms with a business minded approach and commitment to social and environmental responsibility, seeking to remain financially sustainable while improving their community. APSY owns approximately 1,050 hectares of land, mostly composed of forest. Only 14% is devoted to crops and 10% are coffee plantations. The old farms have been restored with new technology for weaving and other complementary practices. The new plantations were made with high quality and highly productive seedlings. Now, they have achieved surprising yields: in the third year since transplanting to the field, gold coffee has an average yield of 80 quintals per hectare. These plantations are managed with systematic pruning so as not to exhaust the land, achieving average yields of 40 quintals per hectare every year, throughout a life cycle of 25 years.
