Family Company and Farms

We source coffee from our farms, from our neighbors’ farms, and from our friends’ farms. We know these mountains; they are our mountains. Our family has lived here for generations.

Join us in sharing values of family and prosperity here and at home. We work with the Rainforest Trust to protect real rainforest when you purchase our Pure Canopy products.


Custom Blended

We have three "art and science" coffee labs from which we test and create each exclusive blend. Our coffee masters have nearly 100 years of combined experience. They pour that experience into each special blend.

Each final offering is the result of hundreds of hours of testing and experimentation until it is perfect and ready for your cup.

Hand-Picked at Elevation

We hand-pick this beautifully curated coffee from our own property in the mountains as well as from the surrounding farms of our friends and family. We only pick what is ripe.

We never use machinery for harvesting and we dry our coffee naturally, by hand, in the warm sun and cool mountain air.


Always Fresh

We have been roasting coffee for generations. We roast each small batch of Pure Canopy individually to ensure the peak of freshness and flavor. We start with beans fresh from the field. Something nearly no other roaster can say.

You will know it when you take your first sip, this is special Colombian coffee! Enjoy the perfect cup of coffee with Pure Canopy.

Rainforest Trust and local partner Center for the Development of Indigenous Amazon work to protect rainforest lands in 220 communities covering more than 10 countries and million acres, in order to legally protect indigenous lands.

It is crucial to close the unprotected gaps between indigenous territories to prevent colonists and industries from negatively affecting the integrity of the ecosystems. In addition to granting communities the rights to their land, this will provide protection for Endangered species such as the White-bellied Spider Monkey, Giant Otter and Black-faced Black Spider Monkey.

Your support of this coffee and the generous matching donations from other supporters will make sure this happens!

Amazonia is the world’s largest tropical forest and spans nine countries in South America. After Brazil, Peru has the greatest extension of this biome which represents more than half of the surface of the country.

The Loreto and Ucayali Regions are the two largest Amazon regions in Peru and are traditionally occupied and protected by indigenous groups. Unfortunately, hundreds of indigenous communities have no recognized ownership rights and their lands are under tremendous pressure from logging, agro-industries and colonists.

Without the titles to their territories, native communities have no legal instrument to defend these lands from activities like logging and agricultural expansion.
