En 2001 se creó la Red de Productores Ecológicos de la SNSM – Red Ecolsierra. En un principio, y durante la década del 2000, los desafíos fueron los hostigamientos de los grupos al margen de la ley a la población civil; la poca inversión e intervención del estado en materia de infraestructura en la zona y el escepticismo ante un modelo agrícola que promoviera la protección y conservación de la fauna y flora local. Hoy, el compromiso de 352 familias productoras es producir y comercializar café orgánico certificado y de comercio justo en mercados internacionales, y así contar con un mejor precio, para así poder acceder a primas orgánicas y de comercio justo que financien las inversiones de mejora en, productividad, manejo ambiental y calidad del producto en sus fincas y la creación de fondos de inversión social, educación y comercialización.

Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

Currencies
When calculating price, you can currently select only USD. For payments in CHF, EUR, or GBP please contact us.

3 payment methods are accepted on algrano:

1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee when it arrives in Europe. We will send you an invoice 20 days before it arrives in the warehouse, so you can have your coffee released right after payment. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.

2. Credit cards
Master Card, Visa, Maestro and Discover credit cards are accepted. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.

3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
