Colombian Certified Fairtrade Organic
The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is the world’s highest coastal mountain range and boasts the fifth highest peak in the world. Its high elevations (up to 5,700 meters) and frequent rainfall (between 1,500 and 4,000 millimeters annually, depending on elevation) make the small but tall mountain range ideal for growing coffee.
Red Ecolsierra is uniquely committed to growing organic coffee. There aren’t a lot of organic coffee farms or producers in Colombia right now, but this network is seeking to change that. Currently, Red Ecolsierra has 600 families that run coffee farms; 235 of them are certified organic, and the other 365 are pursuing organic certification.
This coffee is both creamy and full-bodied with diverse notes of citrus, stone fruit, dark chocolate and caramel tasting notes. Colombian coffees are typically very balanced and oftentimes have a complementary fruit-forward note, allowing for their flavours to play like a perfect harmony in a very enjoyable cup of coffee.
