Coffees grown at altitudes above 1,600 m are designated SHB (Strictly Hard Beans), SHG (Strictly High Grown) or HB (Hard Beans). At this altitude, the beans grow more slowly, becoming denser and larger. Therefore, for South American countries, the growing height is a quality characteristic.

The Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera „CASIL“ Ltda., was founded in 1966, as one of the first and pioneering organizations in the North-East of Peru, in the 1980s it became the largest and most important Cooperative in the Region.
