Our Thoughts:
This is an amazing coffee, great for espresso-based coffees, with very distinctive caramel and orange notes that cut perfectly through the sweetness of the milk making a very creamy and smooth and balanced coffee. 

These groups represent almost 300 families, around 660Ha of coffee farmland, and around 1 million kg of coffee (parchment) production each year. Despite good production levels, income from coffee for these families dropped to unsustainable levels in the past few years. They face a crossroad; either find alternative means of income outside coffee, or find a more stable and sustainable market.

We are supporting our partner in Colombia and this Red Association by making sure that the price we are paying for the coffee is really making a difference to the farmers who are part of this association. This association ensures that a minimum fixed price of 1M COP/carga of dry parchment coffee they produce to a community lot. This price results in double the household income of a typical coffee-producing family, compared with the average income in the regular market over the past 5 years.
