The best Colombian coffee beans are known for being mild, well-balanced and much sought-after. Fondo Paez’s specialty handcrafted coffee goes a step further by combining great flavor with a storied history.
Coffee farming members of Fondo Paez (who also call themselves Nasa, or “the people”) belong to the largest indigenous group in Colombian coffee growing regions. Fondo Paez was founded in 1992, to recuperate traditional agricultural knowledge and indigenous culture, which had been buried by centuries of conflict and oppression. To ensure a stable income for their members, Fondo Paez organized community-based coffee cooperatives.
