CECOVASA's production area covers the Tambopata and Inambari Valleys in Sandia province, department of Puno, about 1,600 kilometers south of Lima.

The largest coffee farmer organization in the area, CECOVASA provides logistical support, on-farm technical assistance, and access to credit and training to its members. Cecovasa is made up of 8 cooperatives and 1 association. It has attracted significant NGO support by making coffee a viable alternative to coca production while protecting forests.
