Crafting Coffee with Care: The Story Behind COSURCA

This exceptional coffee is sourced from a network of family-owned farms organized around the Cooperativa del Sur del Cauca (COSURCA), located within the vibrant Cauca region of Colombia. COSURCA is an umbrella cooperative that brings together 11 community cooperatives spanning 10 municipalities across the Cauca department.

At the heart of COSURCA's operations is a centrally located dry mill facility and cupping lab, where the coffee is meticulously received, processed, and selected for export. Beyond just marketing coffee globally, COSURCA is deeply committed to supporting its producers, providing them with essential financing, training, and technical assistance to continually improve the quality of their coffee.

But COSURCA's impact extends far beyond the coffee itself. The cooperative also strives to enhance the overall quality of life for its coffee producers and their families. Through innovative initiatives like a fruit juice production facility, utilizing the same cultivated fruits from the coffee farms, and a healthy kitchen program that funds kitchen renovations for the producers, COSURCA is truly making a holistic difference in the lives of its community.

This coffee, crafted with care and a deep commitment to the well-being of its producers, is a testament to the power of cooperative efforts and the transformative impact they can have on both the product and the people behind it.
