About the coffee
This coffee is produced by a 50 farmer member association, formed in 2014 with the idea of producing organic coffee and receiving certification in 2016. The reason for the move to organic was to offer a healthier product, but also with consideration to farmer’s quality of life and the well-being of the environment. Additionally, organic practises helps to restore fauna and flora to the coffee lands.
Coffee pricing is transparent and paid in relation to quality, while farmers receive support from the buying stations on quality assurance and education.
