Mother coffee – Coffee harvesting

The organization was founded back in 2008 during the Participatory Council of Coffee Women of the city of Manizales. In 2013, the organization is registered as an Association and since 2015, they have been engaged in the project “Oportunidades Rurales” by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Colombian International Corporation (CCI). The main objective of this project was to acquire the machinery and equipment necessary to create an industrialized coffee process for the Association.

Thanks to the execution of this project, it was possible to purchase the coffee roaster and the sealing machine, as well as design the brand image, deploy a marketing study, register the brand, create bar codes and process all the documentation related to the official creation of the company including the Colombia’s National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute’s registration.

Since then, the聽“Asociaci贸n聽Mujer y Cafe” has launch and commercialize three coffee lines:
