About The Coffee
Humberto Pecupaque is a leader in the Nasa We'sx indigenous community and a role model to others involved in coffee production. Alongside his wife Alba, he is co-proprietor of Finca El Diamante in the San Pedro reserve of the Nasa We'sx indigenous group near Gaitania, Tolima. Humberto had a terrible accident last year that very nearly took his life and completely derailed him and his family from their paths, including the construction of a new wet-mill to carry out experimental processes for the farm of low-yielding exotic varietals just coming into the second year of production, and losing the end of year fly crop in the family's absence.
He is about 6 months into a slow recovery and Alba has taken the reins of the farm with the help of other community members and a fermentation "recipe" Humberto had developed with our importing partners Langdon Coffee Merchants last year (which, luckily, they remembered).
Let's show our love to Humberto and Alba by buying this beautiful coffee and sharing it over @cedroalto on Instagram, the agricultural co-op the family work.
We have also included the full transparency report in our photos, which shows the difference in income for the family selling specialty microlots with support from our importing partners as opposed to selling to the commodity market.
