Colombian Fondo Paez Medium RoastHigher Grounds Coffee
Walnut * Brown Sugar * Peach
We source coffee from three different Colombian cooperatives in the Cauca region, depending on seasonal availability. Currently our Cauca offering is from the Fondo Paez co-op, which largely represents Colombia’s largest indigenous group, the Nasa (meaning “the people”).
Caught in the middle of an ongoing civil war, the farmers of Fondo Paez are committed to nonviolence and remain neutral as the conflict continues throughout their land. Their struggle for peace guides these farmers as they work to retain their ancestral farming practices. In addition to cultivating coffee, the farmers collect seeds and cultivate native beans and corn to provide a healthy diet for their families. Partners since: 2004
