Red de Cafeticultores 5 de Diciembre - Traceable To: 1,420 Smallholders

The Red 5 de Diciembre network is at the La Cañada regional cooperative, itself made up by 13 first-level organizations to represent 1,300 small indigenous producers. Over the past six years this group has been working to improve selective harvesting, specialty processing, and marketing of these higher value lots. They’ve succeeded in growing membership, and obtaining organic certification, but it was not until 2020 that they were able to achieve and significant premiums for specialty. This was the year they partnered with the cupping team at Ensembles de Café, who worked with this group to separate out their very best and set the model for years to come.
