Good Coffee, Better Planet

CODECH was established in 1998 when the Alliance for Youth Community Development teamed up with local organizations to create an entity that would represent the interests of the municipality. Since 2004, the group has supported local smallholder farmers produce and market their coffee. Over the past decade yields on the coffee farms surrounding Concepción Huista have dramatically decreased because of climate change, but training and systematic renovations initiated by CODECH seven years ago are paying off. These programs are the driving force behind the group’s recent growth as non-members witness the impact on production and quality. Comprised of over 500 producers, a third of whom are women, CODECH continues to attract new members each year.

This coffee is certified Fair Trade and Organic.
