Tucked in the heart of the Cordillera Central mountains of Cauca, Colombia, the Nasa people who make up the farmer co-op of Fondo Paez, produce some of the world's best coffee. We roast this coffee so that it has a medium body and it maintains its medium-to-high acidity and fruity flavor. Founded in 1992, the Nasa are the largest indigenous group in Colombia, and the group has the primary goal of recuperating traditional agricultural knowledge and indigenous culture, which had been buried by centuries of conflict and oppression. Today with 550 members, Fondo Paez stands in solidarity with Colombia's small farmers (campesinos), and we stand in support of Fondo Paez. We hope you will support them, as well.
Available in a variety of grind options.
Elevation: 1,600 - 2,100 m Varietals: Typica and Castillo Suggested Brewing Method: Hario

My friend loved the coffee. They’ve been to Columbia and prefer your coffee to what they had in Columbia.

I look forward to my morning cup(s) before I even get out of bed. So worth the effort to plan ahead when ordering. I started doubling my order so that I wouldn't run out again. Thank you for this Columbian blend!

A Perfect Morning Coffee
If you like to start your day with a great cup of coffee then this is your coffee! It's mild - not bitter, but has just the right amount of umph to get your day started. Feels great supporting a small farmer too!

So mild and yet so energizing!
The taste is very mild, soft and sweet. Not bitter at all. But it still has a great kick to it. Wakes you up and energizes like any bold coffee does.

Batch after batch, it is consistently flavorful. The medium roast preserves the flavorful character of the bean.
