Our work with The Green Collection has provided an excellent opportunity for us to support a community development project in Tolima, Colombia. Planadas, a small town in Tolima, has approximately 86 coffee producing hamlets which in turn represents around 7000 small farms ranging from 0.5 to 6 hectares. These are all very small scale, family run micro-lots who put every effort into producing speciality coffee. Their production, no matter how small, accounts for their livelihood.The project has been set up to support social development throughout Planadas. With each farm guaranteed a more than fair price for their coffee and a guaranteed point of sale, they are in a better place to continue to produce this amazing coffee. Any profits from the social development project is being put back into the community to improve the quality of life for all of those in Planadas.
Very fresh and tasty beans, will definitely purchase again!
