Shade is provided by Inga and other native forestall trees The additional Fair Trade revenues enable La Florida to fund various programs for education, environment, health and other social initiatives.

Coffee Grading in Peru

Grade indicators, which vary by country, are used to describe the largest beans: AA in India, Kenya, Tanzania, and Papua New Guinea or AAA in Peru. Beans with a screen size of 17 or 18 (17-18/64 of an inch) are assigned the "AA" which denotes the size, shape and density of the bean. It is a well-known fact that the largest bean is going to produce more of the treasured oils that give your coffee the fabulous aroma and intense flavor.

FUN FACT!
Florida means flower in Spanish.

Country's Flag

Flag description: Three equal, vertical bands of red (hoist side), white, and red with the coat of arms centered in the white band; the coat of arms features a shield bearing a vicuna (representing fauna), a cinchona tree (the source of quinine, signifying flora), and a yellow cornucopia spilling out coins (denoting mineral wealth); red recalls blood shed for independence, white symbolizes peace.
