Rioblanco is a municipality tucked away in the mountains of the south of the department of Tolima in Colombia. It is in the skirt of the central mountain range of Colombia and 47% of its area belongs to the National Natural Park of Las Hermosas. Many of the producers from the municipality of Rioblanco who deliver coffee to Las Brisas come from farming families and whose farms have been passed through generations.
This community lot opens the specialty market (and prices) up to producers too small to produce single farm lots. We’re happy to say this year the price paid to the farmer was almost 20% higher than the market rate - quite impressive while the coffee market is high.
