THE CUP

This is a washed, organic and fair trade certified coffee produced in northern Colombia, Sierra Nevada. Expect a cup with a creamy caramel note and a hint of  preserved lemon.

 

THE PRODUCER

This is a regional blend from the north-western area of Colombia. Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a mountain range that translates to “Saint Martha’s Snow-Covered Mountain Range” named after Martha, the patron saint of servants and cooks.

ANEI produces high-quality organic coffee grown in harmony with, and with respect for, Mother Earth. ANEI was founded in 1995 by Aurora Izquierdo. As the first Arhuaco woman of the Yewrwa community to obtain a university degree, her goal was to organise the local indigenous and farmer economies. She used coffee as a tool to secure the future of those communities through the implementation of eco-sustainable programs and projects.

The ANEI cooperative consists of indigenous and campesino groups among its 700+ members. ANEI seeks to support indigenous cultures in the region.

Growing coffee organically supports the worldview of being the “elder brothers” of humanity and stewards of the earth. In order to bring back balance to the universe, they make offerings at sacred sites. Every harvest season, they ask permission to take from the earth, with a future promise to return it.
