Masteroast is proud to be able to highlight some of the excellent work carried out by our sister company in Colombia; MasterCol.
MasterCol is a speciality coffee exporter with a focus on high quality and sustainable supply chain support for their producing partners and overseas buyers.
Below are a couple of videos showing one of the projects that MasterCol is supporting
Jericó is a beautiful vibrant and colorful place, the farmers there are incredibly dedicated to the tradition of quality coffee cultivating. The above video shows how they are tied to tradition and the use of a famous satchel that is made in the town that they call a Carriel or Guarnial. The farmers used this to do one of the most important responsibilities in Jericó and that was to go into town and pay the "journal" They used this customary bag to pay the workers. A key element of Jerico Antioquia that makes this a primed specialty coffee producer would be the elevation, the town sits at 1,950 masl, the elevation is only bested by the landscape which is truly beautiful. Don't take my word for it, watch the video.
If you have any interest in any particular coffees that we can help source from Colombia, please do not hesitate to ask the Masteroast team.
