Colombian San Lorenzo Coffee

Coffee
Information

Colombia is the second largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed and Arabica coffee.

This producer group is part of the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Alto Occidente de Caldas which was established in 1964. The San Lorenzo indigenous group are based in the Rio Sucio municipality of Caldas where there are 11,500 inhabitants with 1,150 farmers producing coffee within 21 communities. Until recently, this region was heavily inhabited by the FARC, ELN, Paramilitary groups and guerrillas, who looked to control this central corridor in Colombia. This region has not been known for specialty production but as the local tensions ease and access has improved, it is now possible to demonstrate the quality of the coffees available.

The indigenous inhabitants believe in the Pacha Mama, where they see the land as a living being. To them it is their duty to protect the natural environment and have as little impact as possible from their farming of coffee and to leave it as it has always been.
