THE DETAILS

The Cocaine For Coffee Project is a program started in 2012 in Colombia as a means of rescuing coca farmers and their families from a very dangerous industry. Cafe Kreyol has continued this operation from our original partners in Colombia, to more in Bolivia. In total with this coffee, we have transitioned seven families from growing coca to growing coffee, and those producers have never looked back.

We serve whole bean coffee for maximum quality and freshness.

MEET THE FARMER

A large indigenous community of 35 families, this group was looking for a solution to the coca plant taking all of the nutrients out of their soil, and rendering it more and more impossible to grow other crops. This community is made up of 90% female farmers, who recently transitioned from growing coca to growing coffee. We call it our “Cocaine for Coffee Project”. The land had harder clay soil from growing so much coca, yet in the past 5 years, they have already seen a significant amount of regeneration. We continue to see the same progress, and believe it will be even better as time goes on.

WHY CAFE KREYOL?

We believe farmers should get paid based on the quality of their product and we practice this belief by paying up to 300% higher wages than what Fair Trade requires.

This Direct Trade system, that is now the backbone of Cafe Kreyol, believes that quality and sustainability are parallel.

Our story continues as we work to alleviate poverty in rural coffee growing regions, one cup at a time.
