WHAT I DRINK

WHAT I STAND FOR
The revival of a rare coffee in an isolated region
With the support of fair trade, the producers have renovated neglected coffee plantations and revealed a rare coffee. They were able to revitalize their region.
In the Loja region of Ecuador, farmers were getting little value for their coffee. Discouraged by the high fluctuations in world prices, they were abandoning their coffee farms. In less than 10 years, with the guarantee of fair and stable prices, the FAPECAFES cooperative has confronted the decline of coffee farming. The work undertaken in their coffee gardens (2 to 5 hectares of plots) has revealed all the qualities of their land. Starting from an initiative of a few producers, FAPECAFES is today strong of 1200 members.
