This coffee is part of a community development program which is centralised around the various Planadas hamlets producing higher Quality grade commercial coffees.
The Planadas area represents 86 producing hamlets, representing 6821 small farms ranging from .5 to 6 hectares, renown for producing some of Colombia’s finest Specialty Micro-lot coffees.
The project initiative is to develop a stable environment through traceability, sustainably grown coffee with an emphasis on social development through the sharing of profits within the community.
We have been supporting this program for some time now and you may well have ordered some of the monthly Colombian specials we have had, but this coffee is sourced from the farmers who aren’t big enough to produce there own so this is a result of many farmers coming together. The result is an excellent example of great Colombian Coffee.
