These lands are protected lands for these native peoples, we can count more than 6,000 trees per hectare. They are the guardians of one of the largest natural reserves in Colombia. This land and their beliefs, in taking care of Mother Earth, make them the best allies to produce one of the most respectful coffees in Colombia with organic farming practices. They have joined forces with several organizations of coffee producers, to promote the cultivation of their coffee, ensure income for their families and strengthen their community

We roast our coffee Mondays and Wednesdays! All weekly orders are dispatched twice a week Tuesdays & Thursdays. On all of our coffee bags, we provide you with a roast date. To get the best out of our coffee, we aim to rest it for 7-14 days after roasting (depending on the type of coffee); this allows for the flavors to open up, offering much more clarity to your cup.
