Kogi Wild Coffee is grown in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range separate from the Andes chain that runs through Colombia. Grown by the indigenous Kogi people, who have lived in their mountain home in relative isolation since pre-Spanish Colombia. Guided by a belief system that revolves around their role as a guardians of the Earth, Kogi coffee is grown freely among the natural rainforest with elders conducting spiritual work to guide the process. The practises are considered some of the most sustainable in the world, with farmers washing and drying beans on site, and using mules to transport them up to ten hours away to the community processing centre.
The extremely rare growing conditions produce a highly unique cup, with earthy flavours and herbal aromas. A bright acidity and caramel sweetness can be found on the tongue, producing a fresh and well balanced cup.
Profits from the sale of Kogi Coffee are used to buy back and conserve Colombian ancestral lands and sacred sites.
