This Colombian Single Origin Coffee is part of a community development program which is centralised around the various Planadas hamlets of Southern Colombia. The Planadas area represents 86 producing hamlets, consisting of 6821 small farms, all ranging from 5 to 6 hectares. Thanks to investment by the programme, the area is becoming renowned for producing some of Colombia’s finest Specialty Micro-lot coffees.
The project initiative is to develop a stable environment through traceability and sustainably grown coffee. They emphasise social development through the sharing of profits within the community. The operation ensures that ethical principals, sustainability and quality control become the cornerstone of the local community. These teachings will be passed down for generations. Enabling the coffee industry to flourish while generating economic revenue, and social advancement for years to come.
We have been supporting this program for some time now. You may well have ordered some of the monthly Colombian special single origins we’ve had in the past, our Planadas Colombian differs as this coffee is sourced from a collection of farmers. These farmers work across a number of small holdings in the Planadas area, that aren’t yet big enough to produce their own exports. The result is an excellent example of great Single Origin Colombian Coffee, with the gorgeous deep flavours of dark chocolate, and smooth caramel.
