Over the mountain in La Sierra neighborhood, commune 8 of Medellín, there is a group of farmers who produce high-quality coffee.
The coffee of this micro-lot was harvested in 3 farms of the region: El Descanso, El Tractor, and Villa Sierra. After picking, the ripe cherries are transported to the wet mill, which is called Renacer (meaning new growth in Spanish). It’s here where the magic happens, the mill develops the Lactic process, which gives this coffee a unique tropical summer flavour. Nowadays, the farmers can concentrate exclusively on the collection of their beans and Renacer wet mill is focused on processing and experimentation.
Colombian Artisan Coffee set aside part of our profit to help to fund local agricultural training and experimentation projects.
We work with coffee roasting companies in the UK and Ireland, connecting rural farming communities in Colombia which are economically under-developed, and until recently these regions have been affected by internal conflict like La Sierra.
