Infogaphics: Peruvian Coffee
Peruvian coffee has gained fame as a high-quality, specialty coffee. Peru is now the second largest exporter of organic coffee beans after Mexico. Coffee produced there reaches markets in over 50 countries and has made a special name for itself - especially in the United States, Germany and Belgium. Despite its growing popularity abroad, the coffee sector of Peru still faces many problems at home. With social, economic and environmental troubles brewing in coffee-growing regions, thousands of family producers, unable to reap the fruits of their labour, continue to live in poverty. See this infographic for a snapshot of the state of the coffee sector in Peru.
