Aipecito, the Organic Coffee Bean Region
This coffee bean comes from Aipecito, Huila in Colombia and was supplied by the Asociación Agropecuario de Aipecito, or the Agricultural Association of Aipecito. This is a small cooperative with about 50 members who are all certified Organic Coffee producers. This makes Aipecito coffee a special one, because certified Organic coffee is not only difficult to find, but can also be very pricey. We try to offer these for the fairest possible price, which makes the search a bit more difficult.
The farmers in this cooperative are mainly smaller producers. The life of a small-scale coffee farmer can bring many challenges, especially if the choice is made for organic coffee. Organic certification is unaffordable for a small-scale farmer, which makes a collaboration such as the Asociación Agropecuario de Aipecit so lucrative. Thus, even small-scale operations can share the high costs of organic certification.
Because how great is the idea that even on a small-scale level a product can be produced without this having a negative impact on the environment? And also offer high quality! It hardly gets any better than that. This gives inspiration and hope for the future, not only aimed at the coffee bean market.
