Cooperativa Multiétnica Y Pluricultural De Pequeños Caficultores Del Cauca, or COMEPCAFE, founded in 2010 by a small-but-mighty group of 44 producers, has grown to include nearly 1,000. The name of the organization itself speaks to the structure and the community, as it is truly a cooperative effort among multiethnic and multicultural smallholders, the majority of whom are members of several indigenous and Afro-Colombian groups who live and work around the towns of Piendiamó and Morales. The group is committed to working not only as one with the planet, but also as a unit together, and the more than 900 affiliated farmers actually don’t hire any outside labor during the harvest season, instead preferring to take turns picking, sorting, and delivering to the co-op with each other.
We buy coffee from the world’s best coffee farms. Our farms earn a fair price for their work. The coffee is hand-picked for perfect ripeness. It's roasted to highlight the nuanced flavors unique to the farm where it was grown. This is our way of saying thank you to the farming families that make Conscious Cup possible.
