SHARETRADE

We have teamed up with the Big Rock Coffee Company to bring you this coffee sourced through a new initiative that goes deeper than providing just a ‘fair price’. The ShareTrade model enables farmers to manage their farm as a proper business with access to investment and professional advice to ensure that the farm is capable of becoming economically and environmentally sustainable, and not just a subsistence operation. Head to our blog for more info.

FARM LOCATION | LOS NOGALES AND THE FINCAMIGOS PROJECT, JARDIN ANTIOQUIA, COLOMBIA

SPECIES | ARABICA

PROCESS | WASHED

VARIETALS | CASTILLO, CATURRA

ALTITUDE | 1810 MASL

Jorge lives and works on the Los Nogales smallholding with his wife and three children. The farm is only 0.7 hectares, too small to be profitable in its own right. He worked for many years for a landlord farmer and was promised land in return for labour - unfortunately the landlord reneged and did not provide the land to Jorge.

FincAmigos is a neighbouring estate also committed to speciality quality, innovation and sustainability best practices. In addition to upgrading his own farm, Jorge will help FincAmigos with the planting of new Arabica varietals which should command higher prices in the future. Jorge's objective is to be able to buy an additional hectare of land by 2023.

The Big Rock Coffee Company have teamed up with FincAmigos to fund Jorge’s Farm Transformation Plan, and every bean we roast is helping to increase his productivity, substantially improve his revenues and providing him with a savings plan that will enable him to buy an additional hectare of land by 2023.
