This is the third consecutive year that we have purchased from the small farmers of COMEPCAFE (La Cooperativa Multiétnica Y Pluricultural De Pequeños Caficultores Del Cauca) in Piendamó, Cauca. Most Colombian organic are of poor to average quality, offering an underripe flavour profile of raw nuts and cereal. In contrast, this coffee routinely comes in with very good to excellent quality, which is unusual for a full container lot of organic coffee from Colombia.
COMEPCAFE is heavily involved in organic agriculture, with the aim of managing waste, conserving the soil and improving biodiversity. The cooperative works with producers to increase family income through increased yields and increased quality/prices.
