Grown in the highlands of Cauca near the town of Santander de Quilichao, this coffee sings with flavors of milk chocolate and fruit. Complex floral and caramel aromatics, exciting bright fruity acidity, and a beautiful creamy body make this one of our favorite in-house coffees. Our friends at Fondo Paez have a highly democratically organized cooperative model that addresses the specific needs of each of their 23 communities. Encouraging individual community autonomy while functioning as a single cooperative producer is a challenge throughout the coffee producing world, but Fondo Paez is an exemplary organization of productivity and democracy.

From our coffee cupping:

  • Aroma: Cane sugar, slight red berries
  • Flavor: Caramel, chocolate, plum, tropical fruit
  • Acidity: Medium plus
  • Body: Big, silky

Great taste and smell

This light roast is awesome, my wife and I have been looking for a coffee that met both our tastes and this fit perfectly. we also like that it can come in a 2 lb bag.. seems everywhere else coffee's are sold in small bags. Columbia light roast makes our home smell great first thing in the morning.

My son recommended I try this coffee, and I’m so glad I listened! It’s one of the best I’ve tasted!
