The Cooperativa de Caficultores del Sur del Tolima (CAFISUR) is a cooperative from the Tolima coffee-growing region located in the central part of the Colombian Andes.
Cooperatives like CAFISUR receive stable and fair prices and benefit from their contributions to social development programs, especially when the coffee market suffers worrisome lows.
VMCT has engaged in a new project in this region of Colombia. The project is to empower women and gender equity in Colombia's post-armed conflict zones. VMCT has partnered with the CAFISUR Cooperative, the FCLI (a Canadian government fund), Agro Café and, The Coffee Source.
CAFISUR Project Background
Vail Mountain Coffee and Tea Co has been purchasing coffee from the CAFISUR Tolima Cooperative for the last 4 years and wanted to be more involved in the community that produces such amazing quality coffee.
When you purchase this coffee a portion of the proceeds goes towards this program.
In the cup, the coffee has a medium body, with a bright clean sweet finish and notes of citrus.
