This program is a sustainable Coffee Relationship Model that helps small-scale farmers produce top quality coffee with traditional Colombian varieties, such as Caturra, Castillo, Colombia, Typica, and Bourbon.
We have identified more than 200 coffee-growing families located within a 10km radius of our farm, from whom we buy and process exceptional coffee cherries, while controlling every step of the process.
The program is designed to offer our neighboring coffee-growing families various different benefits (monetary and non-monetary) that help us incentivize them to become an active part of this industry. Together we can commit to the highest quality standards possible, while focusing on innovative practices that protect our ecosystem, our land, our home. At the end of the day, we as farmers are the guardians of our own environment.
