The coffee story



A single farm lot from Jaime Garcia, one of Red Ecolsierra's members in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Jaime's farm has 6 hectares of cultivated area and produces 6.600 kg of dry parchment per season. It is located in Central Córdoba, Minca, Santa Marta. Jaime only works with washed coffees and has achieved great results. If last year Jaime's coffee tasted of milk chocolate, peach and orange, this season it has notes of dried fruits, berries and toffee with a great mouthfeel.

Red Ecolsierra

Colombia FairTrade, Organic, Q Certified
Translate

In 2001, Red Ecolsierra was founded in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains. Initially, and during the 2000s, the challenges were (a) the persecutions and fear spread by the illegal groups against the civilian population; (b) the little investment and state intervention in infrastructure in the region; and (c) skepticism about an agricultural model that promotes the protection and conservation of local fauna and flora. Today, the commitment of 352 producing families is to harvest and market certified organic and fair trade coffee in international markets, and therefore have a better price. With this, the families receive organic and fair trade premiums, which finance infrastructure, environmental management, and product quality projects in their farms, also the premiums contribute to funds on social investment and marketing, and education.

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.
