Our Colombia comes from family farms located in the municipality of Medellin, in the department of Antioquia, Colombia.
On average, each producer grows their coffee on less than 5 acres of land. The coffee growers use their own micro-mill to process the harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in pulping, fermenting and drying the coffee. With this coffee dedicated to supporting small-scale producers you improve their access to international markets while establishing higher incomes.
