2020 Seeds Fund Recipient
Producers in Timbio, Colombia formed the Orgánica cooperative in 2005 primarily to access Organic Certification and seek a market for a more sustainably produced product. True to this spirit, this Seeds grant will fund the construction of “biofabrica” to produce liquid organic fertilizers. These organic inputs will benefit the soils and help the farmers in the neighborhood of Guayabal increase their yields while producing high-quality coffee.
Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $280,000 to Seeds projects.
