This is a coffee with a wonderful story. Produced by Members of ASCAFE Spirit of Peace. ASCAFE's (Asociacion Colombiana de Pequenos Caficultores) works with people who were formerly combatants in Cauca's long-running violent conflict. They are driven by their plans to improve member livelihoods. They use an innovative model that combines quality improvement and social empowerment to drastically increase opportunities for these now farming families. High quality coffee production offers former combatants a chance to start a new, building skills as producers and making a positive impact on themselves and their communities.
While they are driven by their plans to improve members livelihoods, ASCAFE recognises that high quality coffee production is an effective way to achieve their goals. Their dedication to quality improvement is evident in their consistently high scoring coffee. They have also introduced technology such as an app to helps farmers digitalise their production financials. Their horizon for 2025 is to be able to change the overly productive agricultural model in southern Colombia for a more sustainable model, more respectful of their land by also fighting against illicit coca plantations
