When we cupped this coffee from Colombia we were struck by how tropical and soft it was and decided we had to have it to share with you all. Even though the taste of the coffee was exceptional, we were even more inspired by the program that was initiated by Nordic Approach to provide more benefits to the “recolectores” or pickers of the coffee.
This program exists through the collaboration of Nordic Approach (as the buyers of the coffee) with the exporter and local Cooperative. The Cooperative facilitates training a selected group of pickers and identifies a group of farmers to participate in the project. This concept will both promote integrity in what we pay for coffees through the supply chain and in addition, should result in better quality coffees due to better cherry selection.
By purchasing this coffee you are ensuring the pickers receive a salary, along with health care and pension payments. The farmers also benefit from a fair price that allows them to continuously produce exceptional coffee.
