Description

La Laguna Siberia Reserve is located in the North-Eastern part of Cauca Department in between the two municipalities Caldono & Piendamó. The average temperature throughout the year is 20 to 24 degrees Celsius.

Manantial is a small producers association that represents just 12 families. They formed an association to manage, control and coordinate their coffee because they were fed up with being taken advantage of by middle men in the area. They got in touch with CENCOIC and got themselves Fairtrade certified which kick-started their quest for quality and better prices for their coffee. They joined CENCOIC in 2014 with this aim and as you will see from the cup profile of their coffee, they have reached their goal pretty fast! The majority of the community speak Spanish as their mother tongue but there is currently a drive to recuperate the local language Nasa Yuwe. More bilingual schools have been created as a result.

Coffees across all the reserves are de-pulped, fermented & dried at the farm. The farmers deliver their parchment to the local collection warehouse where it is weighed and recorded before being received in to the warehouse in Popayan to be cupped and then dry milled (the process of removing husks and grading coffee) for export at a mill in Popayan before being trucked to the port of Buenaventura.
