In our roastery 

We offer this coffee as both a light and a medium profile on our Toll Roasting menu. Both of these roast levels maintain characteristics of the green. The lighter roast is more fresh and silky while the medium is more dense and chocolatey.  As our own roasting operations grow, finding gems like this to have exclusively on the light to medium roast levels heightens our offerings.

This offering is part of Cafe Import’s Women Producers program from the 300 member group of  FUDAM (Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible). Programs like these provide a gender equity premium at the per pound price which helps contribute to any financial needs the group may have.

In your lineup

If regions in Colombia like Cauca or Huila are familiar to you, consider adding Nariño to your list. Customers will find this coffee familiar and reliable. The cup profile is approachable, with a complexity in overall flavor that keeps you coming back for more. 

Lighter profiles will display higher citric acidity in the cup with apple, lemon-lime, and grapefruit notes. Adding more time and temp in development past your light roast will bring in some deeper flavor notes like hot chocolate, maple, and vanilla bean.

Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible (FUDAM) is a 300-member association of organic-certified (and Rainforest Alliance–certified) growers that was founded in the year 2000 by just seven producers who shared a vision of sustainable agriculture as well as environmental protection and development. This group of smallholders lives in and around the small municipality of La Unión in Nariño.

This specific lot is produced by FUDAM's own Manos de Mujeres, a subgroup of women who are all FUDAM members.

The farmers pick their coffee during the day and depulp it in the afternoon, typically fermenting the lots for 16–24 hours dry. The coffees are generally washed two or three times before being dried in small "casa elbas," mechanical dryers, or parabolic dryers. Mechanical drying takes 25–40 hours, while other drying structures can take up to 15 days.
