Colombia Coffee Growing

Roast magazine is a well regarded industry magazine that this month takes a look into Colombia. I've enjoyed a cup or two of Colombian coffee and I enjoyed reading up on some of the different growing areas. With a half a million coffee farmers growing 10 to 25 bags of coffee each, things really add up.

Coffee farming in Colombia is, to put it quite simply, woven into the fabric of everyday life. People farm the land, producing most of the food and raising the animals that they eat. Money from coffee farming provides cash to improve homes, buy clothes, maintain cars, motorcycles and equipment and buy necessities for their children—and they always have children! Without the extra income that coffee provides, these farmers would be subsistence farmers. It is for this very reason that Colombian coffee farmers are so willing to try and please coffee buyers from North America. It is not uncommon to find a wet-mill architecturally integrated into a coffee farmer’s home.
