Our Bochica blend is sourced from cooperatives, associations and direct partners located across Colombia's most famous coffee-growing departments. Bochica was the Muisca tribe’s father of modern civilization. He brought morality and law to the people and taught them agriculture. Like its namesake, our Colombia Bochica blend will bring order to your life. Every bag of Bochica purchased supports clean drinking water projects in partner communities. The blend is faithful to the traditional washed profile associated with Colombia: well-rounded, full body, chocolate and fruit-forward with bright acidity.
The Farmgate Initiative allows us, through our Colombian green coffee supplier, to help support “Coffee for Clean Water”. Your purchases of our Colombian Bochica will contribute to building water filtration systems in coffee farming communities in Colombia.
Ongoing conflict in many areas of Colombia has made it difficult to implement social development projects. These communities are among the 1.6 million people in Colombia who don’t have access to clean, safe water. Now, expanding peace is making it possible to invest in these rural, coffee-growing communities and build essential infrastructure to improve lives.
This project is implemented by Local Partners, a Colombia-based non-profit organization that develops sustainable initiatives for the coffee sector. Local Partners works with coffee companies to transform needs in coffee communities into impact projects that make a lasting difference.
