Colombia, Martha Reina

TASTES LIKE Stone Fruit, Orange, Brown Sugar
PROFILE Sweet & Balanced


Martha & her husband Julio moved to Pitalito after they were forced from their hometown due to violence in 2010. Knowing nothing about coffee production, they sought the advise of a former worker who taught them everything they needed to know. With each harvest the quality has improved, thus receiving a higher price from the sale to Caravela, in turn using the money to improve drying facilities at their farm.

We believe in the future of coffee. We’re calling on the industry to pay sustainable prices, so coffee farmers don’t need to turn to other crops to survive. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price we paid to the exporter & within that, the Farmgate price, what Martha directly earned for his coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, this coffee was shipped to Melbourne, quality assessments completed, roasted (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retailed, adding significant costs. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
