Coffee Background

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Asociación de Mujeres Caficultoras del Cauca (AMUCC), a producer association with 274 women who live within the municipalities of Balboa, Cajibio, Caldono, El Tambo, Florencia, La sierra, La Vega, Morales, Piendamo, Popayan, and Timbio in the department of Cauca, Colombia. The average age of AMUCC members is 40 years old and each member is the head of her household. AMUCC coordinates with Expocafé (an exporter dedicated to supporting coffee cooperatives) to improve coffee quality and increase access to international markets for women who produce coffee.
