Set on protecting their farming land, a small group of farmers banded together and formed an association which they named APROCASSI. APROCASSI (Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Solidarios de San Ignacio) was formed nearly twenty years ago in 2000, originally as an effort to protest the mining companies who were flocking to the area to harvest precious metals. Two decades later, with great determination and organization, APROCASSI has continued to overcome adversities while improving quality and building membership at the same time. Today, the association has 2 principal receiving stations both in Cajamarca, with their original office in San Ignacio and their newer facility in Jaén. They have 35 bases in total, each with 15-18 members, totaling 601 total producers for the 2019 harvest.
