Background Details

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms located in the community of San Isidro in the municipality of Acevedo within the department of Huila, Colombia. The producers collaborate with an export company called Banexport to gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices. Banexport has matched these regional producers (Jorge Efren Jimenes, Alvaro Perdomo, Sandra Yadira Vargas, Edgar Quilindo, Jorge Alexander Jimenes, and Alipio Zuñiga) because of their shared commitment to exquisite coffee processing and loving care for their farms (Santa Ana, Providencia, Buenos Aires, El Progreso, Santa Ana, and Las Palmas), which produce complementary profiles. These producers also share a passion for environmental stewardship, which has brought them together to protect a forest with groves of native black oak trees.
