Peru RFA SHG

 

Peru is a country that is well known for its high altitudes; the Andes Mountain range and Machu Picchu are popular destinations. This particular coffee type is very similar to the Peru SHG (Strictly High Grown). This coffee is can be grown in several regions at very high altitudes averaging 1350 meters above sea level thus classifying it as a SHG.

The difference between the 2 types lies in the Rainforest Alliance certification. To be RFA certified means having standards that are intended to protect the environment and the rights of workers. This certification allows the farmers to have a sustainable farm-management system, control costs, gain efficiencies, improve crop quality, and maintain the wildlife habitat. So this certification ensures consumers that the Rainforest Alliance certified coffee that they drink, supports sustainable supply and it also demonstrates the importance of responsible coffee sourcing.

  • SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean; which creates a more desirable specialty cup; this classification is higher than HG.
  • RFA (Rainforest Alliance) standards that are intended to protect the environment and the rights of workers..
