timana, colombia

Centuries ago, a warrior tribe ruled the land this coffee grows on. This coffee is named after them – Timana. It’s packed full of fruity flavours, with a rounded body. Grown by a smallholder co-operative in Colombia, our partners since 2003.

asprotimana cooperative, huila, Colombia

The region of Huila has long suffered from violence and instability. Back in 2001, a community of 32 smallholder farmers in Timana wanted to bring some constancy to their lives. Coffee is an important cash income crop in this region so these producers decided to begin working together with the aim to be more effective in preparing their coffee and gaining access to the market. This was how Asociación de productores agrícolas de Timaná – ASPROTIMANA – came to being. Their aim was to focus on the quality of their coffee to establish better prices and achieve a stable market to improve the social and economic position of their families. 

The cooperative’s name is derived from the Timana warrior tribe that originally inhabited the region. These producers are now peaceful farmers who cultivate several different varieties but mainly Caturra, with some Colombia and Castillo. Today the association has increased to more than 90 families and they have been exporting coffee to Union Hand-Roasted Coffee since 2003. They are one of our longest relationships. To support them improve their quality and business systems Union donated cupping lab facilities in 2005. Over the years several of the producers have certified their own farms within the cooperative as Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance.

NEW UK DELIVERY INFORMATION FOR SUMMER 2016
