In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we invite you to another installment of our "Meet the Farms" series, where we take you on a journey into the world of coffee origins. Today, we shine a spotlight on the source of our beloved Coltrane roast - the family-owned farms in the enchanting municipality of Piendamó, located within the Cauca department of Colombia. These dedicated producers not only cultivate exceptional coffee but also nurture their land for the prosperity of their families. Join us as we delve into the story of this region, its commitment to quality, and the relationships that are making a difference.
From Piendamó with Love: The municipality of Piendamó, nestled within the Cauca department of Colombia, is a place where coffee isn't just a crop; it's a way of life. Here, family-owned farms dot the landscape, each with its unique story and dedication to the art of coffee cultivation. It's a region where tradition meets innovation, where generations of knowledge are passed down to create some of the world's finest coffee.
Empowering Women in Coffee: Colombia is the world's leading producer of washed Arabica coffee, and its farmers are keen to secure fair prices for their harvests, independent of the New York market price. At Red Bay Coffee, we are forging strong relationships with women farmers from the Cauca region. These relationships are built on mutual respect and the shared goal of ensuring the success and sustainability of these farmers. By empowering women in coffee, we contribute to more equitable outcomes for everyone involved in the coffee journey.
