The Orgánica cooperative in the region of Cauca, Colombia, has been creating coffee for our La Golondrina offering since 2007. Over the years, they have shown they are one of the strongest organizations we work with—and it's no wonder they have one of the best organic coffees in the country. Look for layered flavors of milk chocolate, cherry, and nut.

Origin

Story

Coffee exporter Caravela introduced us to the Orgánica Cooperative that produces La Golondrina almost a decade ago. At that time the coffee-growing association was still establishing itself as a viable organization and only able to produce small amounts of coffee. The members of Orgánica had all belonged to larger, regional cooperatives before forming Orgánica in hopes of finding recognition for their high-quality product and more accountability from the organization. Nelson Melo and his wife, Liliana Pabón, both of whom have backgrounds in organizing, galvanized a handful of growers to sell coffee to Caravela for the first time in 2005. Over the next few years, membership and overall production grew steadily.
