Description: Welcome to Café Fusiones!... a place that initially emerged as an idea in November 2008, we wanted to create a space in which people enjoy and encounter the flavour, aroma, beauty and quality of the organic products which are offered in our region – Amazonas. In April 2009, we opened our doors in order to offer you an extensive menu with a fusion of flavours based on regional organic products, following the principles of ‘slow food’ (as opposed to fast food), guaranteeing good, fair food, with tasty ingredients, produced without damaging the environment, wildlife or our own health; and always ensuring a fair and just price is paid to the producers. For this reason, we work directly with community organizations and private businesses, such as the Cooperativa Agraria Rodríguez de Mendoza with their flagship product Bio Café, the Asociación de Productores Santa Rosa who provide us with our organic natural sugar, La Chetina, with its milk based products and jams made from local fruits, the Asociación de Mujeres Artesanas de Leymebamba, with their artisan textiles and Artesanía Huamán, with their work in wood. We sell all of their products in our Fair Trade shop. In café Fusiones we support and promote fair trade and in addition to buying our region´s organic food products we also take account of the fine work of local carpenters, potters, weaver and other artisans, because we trust and value their work and we are proud to show the art that they have created with their hands.

“A great cafe, with a big heart.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Cafe Fusiones makes wonderful coffee, using beans from a Fair Trade
Co-operative in a local town. So coffee with a conscience, but also the best coffee I have had since starting my trip to South America in April. Food is great too - a mix of local flavours and dishes and a variety of sandwiches and sweet dishes. I have yet to try the local fruit salad, but am assured by others that it is also delicious. The atmosphere is really relaxed with books to exchange, guide books to browse on the local area and tours available through the Sustainable Tourist agency (Nuevos Caminos) which is run from the Cafe and online. The owners, Marilyn and Fran make you really welcome. Great place with Wifi.

“Foreigner atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Not your typical Peruvian place that is for sure. So if you are in the need for a more international atmosphere, go here. They have a variety of desserts and juices and teas. They have pancakes too! They also have wifi and a book exchange program with books in various languages.

“An average place for Chachapoyas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Overhyped place.

Bohemian place that gets most of the hippie/backpaker crowd that comes through town. Local Peace Corps hangout.

Small portions for the price. In other words, overpriced. Poor service.

You can get some decent coffee from local producers.

Sandwiches way overpriced.

“Great coffee and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

A good place to relax and recharge your batteries after a day of hiking. The place is run by a friendly Peruvian couple. Breakfast included great fruit juice, a delicious fruit salad and teddy bear shaped pancakes.

I was living in northern Peru for several months, missing decent coffee, but at the end of a tour we went to the cafe and had a real coffee....soooo good!
