Our newest offering, Red 5 de Diciembre, is the result of an incredible amount of effort and collaboration. It is named after the largest organization of coffee producers in the La Cañada region and represents over 1,300 small indigenous producers. The Red 5 de Diciembre network came into existence on December 5th, 2014 as a result of La Roya, an agricultural disease, that decimated coffee plants, devastating the region, and scaring away international coffee buyers. Since its inception, The Red 5 de Diciembre network has been working on improving selective harvesting, processing, and obtaining organic certifications for its members. They also have helped to cut out the middle man and get the coffee directly to roasters like us, allowing the farmers to receive more money for their crops while creating new opportunities for growth in the area.
