Description

Green Coffee – Quebradón, Colombia as washed coffee source direct from Caravela.

Colombia and Caravela

To say we at Quaffee love Colombian coffee is an understatement. Our love affair is thanks to our relationship with Caravela, who are one of the original founders of relationship coffee. Their relationships with caficultores (coffee growers) in Colombia is at ground level, with each grower.
Palestina, Colombia

As a result of these relationships is what has driven the quality in coffee from Colombia. Caravela have concentrated their efforts in the highlands of the Colombian Andes. Working with each caficultor is driving their quality up.Consequently rewarding each caficultor with financial rewards keeps them motivated to improve with every crop.

Since 2011 Caravela has introduced their PECA program. PECA identifies sons and daughters of caficultores who showed an interested in learning how to improve coffee quality by controlling how coffee is grown, picked, sorted and dried. Besides these processing areas, each member is taught how to roast and cup coffee. Because feedback is provide to their and other families quality has continually improved. As a result income as improved as coffee is a main source of income.

    We had to have this coffee again. After it stood out on the cupping table, we decided another Colombian can’t hurt. But we do have a few now.
