Mildred Niebles is a farmer and also the head of quality for Red Ecolsierra, an organic co-operative located in Santa Marta, Magdalena. She owns a 9 hectares coffee farm in Minca, Santa Marta, and produces mainly washed coffees (10.600 kg of dry parchment washed compared to 460 kg of honey). This honey micro-lot is funky and full-bodied, with notes of dark ripe fruits such as cherry and strawberry. Mildred is one of the few farm owners of Ecolsierra with a university education and Q-grader certification. She has also raised 3 children as a single mother and was shot at and expelled from her land during the armed conflict.

About the group 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.

FAQ


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.
