“Colombia Organic: This coffee is from the red Eco sierra Nevada in the region of Santa Marta in Northern Colombia near the Caribbean coast.
Cooperative Red Eco Eierra was established in 2001 and is made up of 18 individual groups, 600 families across 900 farms. The annual harvest is between November and February and the cooperative organically grows Typica, Castillo and Colombia varieties of Arabica plants, at an altitude of 900-1300 metres.
Red Eco Sierra was established in order to consolidate production and move towards a more sustainable production model. Trade, administration, production and marketing have all been consolidated into the cooperative. The community has begun conversion plans to include the construction of basic sanitation, processing, pulping, building, composters, redefining production, and the conservation and protection of flora and fauna that gives rise to biodiversity in the fragile sierra Nevada valley”
