About the Farm

Our Peru Fairtrade Organic coffee is produced by the Cooperativa Agroindustrial de Jovenes in Junin, Peru. The Coop has heavily invested in worker training programs with a focus on improvements in quality and production output. In the cup this coffee is balanced with medium acidity and good body with some notes of spice and baking chocolate before a syrupy, pleasant finish.

Peru is the world’s largest producer of organic coffee, accounting for 30,000+ tons of annual green coffee exports. What’s more, there are nearly 220,000 acres of Peru Organic coffee farms, the majority of which use natural shade at high elevations in the northern portion of the nation’s Andes. Many of Peru’s farmers have been using natural shade and other generations-old, essentially “organic” techniques for years, and long ago made the determination that organic certification offered them the best potential income compared to neighboring, non-organic regions. Peruvian farms that use natural shade promote healthy ecosystems and preserve indigenous forests by providing sanctuary for local bird populations, who in turn control pests and insects, and help farmers avoid a reliance on chemicals and pesticides. Peru Organic coffee standards require all fertilizers and composts to be organic in nature, which goes hand-in-hand with Peru’s (and many other nation’s) traditional growing methods such as natural shade and the recycling coffee pulp, mulch and manure for compost. Overall coffee is Peru’s largest agricultural export, making them the world’s ninth largest producer of non-organic arabica.

The cup has a clean, fragrant aroma and an overall very good balance with a medium acidity but a better body than most other South American coffees. There is a very nice finish with a hint of an almost spicy flavor, notes of baking chocolate and a syrupy-sweet finish.

  3. Stopped by at a farmers market while driving through Morrow Bay. First stand I see is a man with his support animal and with the way my girlfriend and I are we can’t just walk by. We had our Ling-Ling (girlfriends emotional support dog) with us dressed up in her American flag dress. He started telling me about the coffee and how it supported him being a veteran in need of a support animal. We couldn’t walk away. We headed inside and met the owners as we were signing up. Most heartwarming people I had ever met and even went out of their way to go get my Ling-Ling a bacon treat. Continued to shower us with care and compassion. The best 3 C’s. Care Compassion and best of all Coffee for a cause. Definitely will be referring this out

  5. Rescue Me Coffee Co. is the ONLY coffee I buy for home/work. It’s delivered fresh and quickly to your home or work, with a few postcards talking about the coffee and it’s origins, along with information on the non-profits they are supporting AND their adorable CEO – Mad Max! I love being able to support non-profits that take care of animals, while drinking delicious coffee! Kudos to Rescue Me Coffee Co. for supporting single origin, direct trade coffee beans from organic farms. I highly recommend subscribing today!!!

  6. Best coffee. Hands down. Taste delicious, smells amazing, fresh, and amazing quality! The quality itself is what got me. It’s affordable and I love that they give back. My husband is not a coffee drinker, he absolutely LOVES this coffee. Every time I turn around he’s drinking my cup. They give back to good causes which I love and it truly is heartwarming to see. This coffee is my morning pick me up. I always look forward to new coffee arriving at my door. It’s like my own treat. Besides the coffee, they take care of their customers. They are like family and treat their customers as such. They send little goodies now and then to not just you but your fur baby. They are the sweetest people youll ever meet.

  8. I love rescue me coffee and enjoy receiving my order every month. Nice not to have to worry about it. Just shows up at my door and I am donating to a great cause as well!

  9. Ditto EVERYTHING that Ali Betts posted. The only, and I mean ONLY coffee I drink is roasted by Pat Bietz/Rescue Me Coffee Co. Knowing the coffee will arrive always freshly roasted, never bitter, smooth and delicious is why I love my monthly subscription delivered to my front door ,plus it makes wonderful gifts to friends! Along with the delicious coffee, I know I am supporting two extremely worthwhile groups who make a difference in the lives of our four legged friends looking for their ‘forever homes’ and the many first responders in desperate need of a ‘buddy/service’ dog! Kudos to Suzanne, Patrick, and Mad Max Defender of the Universe/CEO of Rescue Me Coffee Co.

To make it even better they deliver it right to your door, what could be better than that! I get the best coffee to my door, I save money, and help support amazing non profits while enjoying the freshest coffee every morning! Its a win-win! You must try rescue me coffee co!
