Description

The Cooperativa de Caficultores del Sur del Tolima (CAFISUR) is a cooperative from the Tolima coffee-growing region located in the central part of the Colombian Andes.
Cooperatives like CAFISUR receive stable and fair prices and benefit from their contributions to social development programs, especially when the coffee market suffers worrisome lows.
VMCT has engaged in a new project in this region of Colombia. The project is to empower women and gender equity in Colombia’s post-armed conflict zones. VMCT has partnered with the CAFISUR Cooperative, the FCLI (a Canadian government fund), Agro Café and, The Coffee Source.
CAFISUR Project Background:Vail Mountain Coffee and Tea Co has been purchasing coffee from the CAFISUR Tolima Cooperative for the last 4 years and wanted to be more involved in the community that produces such amazing quality coffee.

– General lack of technical expertise in processing and harvesting coffee
– Lack of physical assets to successfully mill coffee.

Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea is one of the highest altitude coffee roasters of its size in the world. VMCT embraces traditional Northern Italian roasting techniques to produce premium, hand roasted small-batch coffees. Given the altitude advantage of roasting at lower temperatures, the sugars and carbohydrates in the coffee bean caramelize very slowly; producing deep, rich flavor profiles without bitterness, even in the darkest of roasts.

Responsibly Roasted & Sustainably Sourced 

“We believe that the farming communities do the hard work and it’s our responsibility to pay tribute to their efforts by bringing out the best flavor profiles possible”, Co-founders Chantler and Arseneau share.
