Happy world water day!

166 Growers. Four years of research and construction. One goal.

Today is World Water Day, we thought it would be a great time to reflect on a water project in Colombia that is helping to improve the health and safety of hundreds of coffee producers today. World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the global water crisis. The goal of this awareness is to support the achievement of water and sanitation for all by 2030.

It began with a team visiting the Florencia community and hosting a meeting with coffee producers to share their experiences and challenges. In response to this meeting, this project was crafted to provide basic water infrastructure and sanitation (septic tanks, sinks, and bathrooms) to 166 coffee producers and their families.

We partnered with The Coffee Source, as well as Portland Global Initiatives, on this water sanitation project in Florencia, Manizales, Colombia. This project had taken over 3 years so far and we are on schedule to complete this project this summer!

We are so happy to have been involved in this project with a team of great people from different organizations that share the same values.

Together we have been working to provide safe and clean water for the people in the Florencia community, while protecting their environment.

Continued support in Colombia

This project is currently ongoing but is almost done and is projected to be completed Summer this year. We’re almost there! 
Are you were interested in supporting the continuation of this project for more coffee producers? Do you drink our coffee? If the answer to both is yes, then we have good news for you, you already do! Our portion of this project is funded by paying higher premium pricing for our coffee from Colombia. If you haven’t tried our Colombia single origin coffee before, we highly recommend it! If you are interested in learning more about other projects like this, check out our social impact page.
With tasting notes of wild berry and sugar cane, this coffee sings with a wonderful sweetness, and is a fan favorite around the cupping table!
