Producer Nilo Medina Simon is part of the Agraria Cafetalera Pangoa cooperative located in the Junin region in central Peru, just east of Andean Mountain range. 

Established in 1977, Pangoa quickly grew to nearly 1,700 members. Their initial success was due to an internal agreement to set aside 3% of each sale to be invested back into the cooperative. Since their inception, Pangoa has embodied the true meaning behind cooperativism -- values and infrastructure built on accountability, democracy and solidarity, values that are still upheld today.

However in the 1980’s a guerrilla group called Shining Path began a socio-political upheaval that lasted for more than decade. This caused the Pangoa membership to drastically decrease when many families fled to bigger cities in hope for refuge because of the warfare taking place in their area.

Today, the coop’s membership has stabilized with around 650- 700 members registering yearly. It is the tightly woven community of farmers in collaboration with Pangoa’s leading staff and the Peruvian government that has allowed for this coop’s indivisibility.
