Cafe Perla was founded in 1997 by Paul Roman Figueroa after spending 10 years working on his fathers wine farm in Italy.  He went back to Peru with a vision - a vision to create a company founded on the principles of outstanding quality, support for the families and farms he worked with and a commitment to the environment.

For the last 20 years they have grown across 5 cities in Peru, and in 2012 joined forces with Apropos International to bring the principles and ideas of Cafe Perla to America.  Now Cafe Perla has a roastery and green coffee warehouse in Reno, Nevada and has been importing coffee to both the East and West coasts.
