Partner farm: Colombia
It takes a warrior’s spirit to start your own business and create something from scratch. Humberto has such a spirit. As a young man, he fought in the resistance against FARC when they attempted to control his land and its people in the 1990’s. Standing in solidarity with his fellow countrymen, Humberto overcame that challenge and went on to become a leader in the Nasa We’sx indigenous community and a role model for other coffee producers in the region. As a coffee farmer, Humberto blends indigenous traditions and modern innovations to produce a coffee like no other. Despite a recent physical setback, Humberto has proven to be a survivor and he and his wife continue to produce some of the world’s best coffee.
