From Casa Espresso:

A pleasant return for this new crop Colombia.

This coffee is produced by the CENCOIC coop by over 316 families in the Cauca region.

Pico de Águila is located in the Honduras Reserve in the municipality of Morales on the western mountain range 32km east of Popayán. The highest peak in the reserve is called Cerro Pico de Águila. At 2800masl up in the Páramo, it’s a touch to high to grow coffee, but members of the local community manage to cultivate it at 1500-1850masl. Pico de Águila is one of the most sacred sites for the indigenous community within the reserve and is also a key source of water for the surrounding region. Cencoic, which stands for Central Cooperativa Indígena del Cauca, is a group that we have been working with since 2008. They are a cooperative comprised of indigenous reserves in the Cauca region and they also export their own coffee
