Background Details

COLOMBIA ORGANIC TOLIMA FERMIN RADA 35KG GRAINPRO is produced by Fermin Rada Rodríguez on his 7 acre farm located within the municipality of Planadas in the department of Tolima, Colombia. For many years his community has remained hidden in plain sight, cradled between other well-known growing regions, because armed conflict and coca leaf production has isolated small coffee producers and exposed them to high rates of violence. Fermin has worked hard to break through the cycle of conflict to produce quality coffee that will yield better earnings for the support of his family.
