Currently, most coffee in Peru is produced in the Junin, Cusco, San Martin and Cajamarca regions. The grade 1 coffee from Peru is the highest quality that grows at 1200 meters or higher, which is why it is referred to as Hard Bean (HB). The coffee from Peru is cleaned mechanically, so that a consistently high quality coffee can be exported (Machine Cleaned Mejorado, MCM).
