A Journey Through Time: The History of Peruvian Coffee

Coffee cultivation in Peru dates back to the 18th century when it was first introduced to the country. Since then, it has become an integral part of Peru's agricultural landscape and economy. Today, Peru ranks ninth in world coffee production, with its beans grown primarily in the high-altitude regions of the Andes Mountains.

"Coffee was introduced to Peru in the 18th century, and by the mid-19th century, it had become a major crop in the country. Peru's coffee production has been steadily increasing over the years, with a significant growth in the 2000s." — International Coffee Organization & Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
