Supporting the origin

Climate change is creating new challenges for coffee farmers, making it increasingly difficult for them to stay in business. Future generations do not want to take over the business and migrate. To solve this problem, we support 50 Julius Meinl coffee farms in Tolima - Colombia, which have been working with us for generations!
