The Best of Peru Includes it’s Homegrown Coffee

Peru Travel IdeasThe best of Peru includes its homegrown coffee. Coffee is loved throughout the world and the most renowned varieties can be found throughout the Americas with Peru being a top contender. If you’re a coffee lover, we have great news for you: Peru is not only a great place to grow coffee, but it’s also a great place to experience coffee! Coffee came to Peru in the mid-1700s, likely the gift of Dutch immigrants, and not long after their first coffee shop was established in 1771. Coffee exports didn’t get underway for at least a hundred years, starting in 1887, and the world has been richer since. The Typica variety of coffee still dominates, notably amongst the older and micro-farms. Typica is one of the main cultivars of Arabica Coffee, and many other commercial types have been derived from it. It has a long seed form, longer than the other main coffee cultivar, Bourbon, its yield is fairly low, and it provides good cup quality.

The first coffee plantings were in Chinchao, Huanuco in Selva Central and disseminated from there to the Northern (Cajamarca) and Southern (Cusco and Puno) regions of the country. If you’re a coffee lover, any Peru tours you take should include visits to these regions. There’s no shortage of cafes and restaurants that serve local, homegrown Peruvian coffee to be enjoyed day or night. The delightful coffee bush is used for coffee production on small farms, some of which were subdivided haciendas before agrarian reform. The hacienda system, common in other parts of South America and the Carribean, were broken up during land reform (1969) of Juan Velasco Alvarado and the land was distributed to peasants in smaller plots. Some of these small farms are open for tours in Peru and purchases of their specialty and gourmet coffee blends give you an opportunity to take home some of the very best of Peru. Have you long been meaning to visit a working coffee plantation? Is it on your bucket list to live and breathe with the rich java bean? If you answered yes, you’re in luck. Easily plan a tour in Peru that includes the sights and sounds of the Andes whilst reveling in the roasted aroma and taste of one of the world’s most coveted beverages. A delicious tour of Peru in every sense of the word!

Organic coffee farming is a growing facet of Peruvian coffee cultivation. Any Peru travel packages should include time for coffee in the opinion of this writer and if you do make it part of your tour, you’ll never settle for Nescafe again! Consider an overnight stay at or near a coffee farm. This is a popular choice among travelers who appreciate the rich experience of the coffee regions with reviews stating, “Taking in the coffee experience was truly the best of Peru!” Life is about journeys and the joy and challenge of looking at the world with open anticipation and the eagerness to experience new things. Book your Peruvian vacation or trip with Best Peru Tours and make unforgettable memories to last a lifetime.

APEC Summits being held in Lima, November 17

Tours to Peru as a full destination are becoming more and more popular, and with the upcoming APEC Summits being Barack Obama in Peruheld in Lima, November 17th – 20th 2016, they’re in the world spotlight and rightly so. APEC Peru 2016 is the year-long hosting of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings which culminate with the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting. It marks the second time Peru will be playing host to the APEC and showcasing the best of Peru for visitors, having hosted the event previously in 2008. High-profile CEOs and world leaders will be attending one or more summits to share and learn about policies, initiatives, and technology & business trends. Topics to be discussed are Human Capital Development, Upgrading SMEs, Regional Food Market, and Regional Economic Integration. Tourists from across the world will come to see the sights and sounds of Peru and to work in an opportunity to mix with important international delegations and the more than 1,300 entrepreneurs that are expected to come. Out of that number, at least 350 Chinese entrepreneurs will be in attendance to learn and strike deals while meeting with Peruvian businessmen and their worldwide counterparts and simultaneously enjoy their own tours of Peru. Discussions and meetings are sure to include leaders of APEC providing visitors and vacationers great opportunities to double up and mix business networking into their leisure time. The venues and contacts made in Peru will have a lasting effect making the tourism industry much more valuable that it would be on its own with Peru travel packages highlighting the work and play opportunities that appeal so strongly to today’s business class traveller.

Notable attendees for the APEC Summits in Lima, Peru include United States President Barack Obama, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Managing Director (MD) of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Madeleine Odette Lagarde, His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, President Michele Bachelet of Chile, PM Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, and PM John Key of New Zealand.

For U.S. President Barack Obama, this will probably be his last tour of Latin America as head of state since he is winding down his last few months in office. The next U.S. President, Donald Trump, will be inaugurated in January 2017 and will inherit any deals struck during Obama’s visit.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be in Lima to present “The Connectivity Revolution” for his portion of the business summit. During the connectivity event, keynote speaker Zuckerberg will outline ideas on how to connect with Wi-Fi using drones that will function as mesh connected, low-flying satellites. These will be parked high up, but not so high that those on the ground won’t be able to connect wirelessly to them. This would be a breakthrough for Peru that has a thousand valleys and communication difficulties, and if proved successful, would allow other countries with similar geographic challenges to benefit as well. Last year, Zuckerberg met with then President Ollanta Humala during the Seventh Summit of the Americas, discussing the Facebook project Internet.org. And just this year, he participated in the Global Congress of Entrepreneurs (GES 2016), meeting with Peruvian entrepreneur Mariana Costa to explore the entrepreneurial climate of the country.

Christine Madeleine Odette Lagarde, Managing Director (MD) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will address the Summit on ‘Why the Empowerment of Women Matters.’ She has stated recently that “Women’s empowerment is one of the key challenges of our time. Targeted government spending on gender equality goals enables women’s empowerment and benefits society.” She is returning to Peru having spoken in October of 2015 for a World Bank meeting about resources and the economy where she stated, “Peru is no longer the proverbial ‘country of the future’—it is the ‘country of the present.’” Peru’s growing importance and development is underscored with this wonderful proclamation.

Returning to Peru will be His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, President Michele Bachelet of Chile, PM Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, PM John Key of New Zealand. These four leaders were in attendance in 2008, the last time Peru hosted the APEC CEO Summit. The country has developed stronger macroeconomic fundamentals compared to their last visit in 2008. Peru’s former Production Minister, Kurt Burneo, is quoted as saying, “There is no doubt the country will show better macroeconomic indicators, such as fiscal solvency. It is not fortuitous that Peru has secured a good place for this indicator of the World Economic Forum report, ranking close to developed countries.” He went on to say, “We have to move forward towards innovation, technology development and institutional strengthening to improve competitiveness. We are talking about various conditions that need to be met.”

A well-produced video titled, “A New Peru,” showcases highlights of the country and lets people know some of what to expect at this phenomenal destination.

And a more thorough video featuring a wonderful assortment of focal points is available in Spanish only, but the visuals are universal, quite lovely, and transcend the language barrier.
