Organic Colombian Fondo Paez MediumHigher Grounds Coffee
Blackberry * Honey * Creamy
The Fondo Paez co-op, located in the Cauca region, largely represents Colombia’s largest indigenous group, the Nasa (meaning “the people”). Similar to other Colombian coffees we have offered, this coffee typically presents notes of stone fruit and honey-sweetened blackberry with a brown sugar finish.
In the aftermath of a decades-long civil war, the farmers of Fondo Paez are committed to nonviolence and remain neutral as the Colombian government rebuilds. Their struggle for peace guides these farmers as they work to retain their ancestral farming practices. In addition to cultivating coffee, the farmers collect seeds and cultivate native beans and corn to provide a healthy diet for their families. Partners since: 2004
