Roseline Coffee is proud to partner with Red Fox coffee importers to offer two micro-lot coffees from some of the most remote areas of Nariño in Colombia. Traditionally coffees from these further reaches of Northern Nariño were collected by coyotes (intermediary buyers) and taken to Buesaco, which is the main hub for parchment trading in Northern Nariño. With cash in hand, these intermediaries were often able to purchase parchment coffees from these producers at levels much lower than what they should get for the quality. Together with FUDAM, Red Fox creates the necessary incentives for these producers to step away from these coyotes.
Nelly Viveros and his family have been producing coffee on finca Los Corales for as long as they can remember. The name of the farm is inspired by community and family gathering. Nelly’s biggest challenge with this year’s harvest was the plummeting C-price, but is thankful for FUDAM to help find buyers like Red Fox.
