Note: Pre-ground coffee beans will get stale quicker, which may cause it to lose its aromatic subtleties. Although we'd be happy to grind the coffee beans to your liking, we highly recommend our customers to grind their coffee beans just before consumption.


If you're seeking a daily espresso with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and subtle fruit-like sweetness, this Colombian bean from FUDAM is an ideal choice. It's highly versatile, performing excellently in straight espresso and milk-based beverages. Additionally, it proves successful in various brewing methods such as mocha pot, drip coffee, and French press.

FUDAM, or the Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible, comprises 300 organic-certified growers (also Rainforest Alliance-certified). Founded in 2000 by seven visionary producers in La Unión, Nariño, FUDAM initially focused on sustainable agriculture, environmental protection, and community development. Unlike coffee-growing regions like Cauca, where farms are typically uphill from towns, La Unión's geography presents a unique landscape: towns are at high elevations while farms are nestled at lower elevations amidst towering peaks and rugged terrain.

Members of FUDAM remain dedicated to sustainability, a core value that has bound them together since their inception. When asked recently about their steadfast commitment to organic farming despite external pressures favoring chemical inputs, the association's leadership affirmed, "This is not just a practice for us; it is our way of life and our deeply held beliefs."

The farmers at FUDAM conduct their coffee harvesting during the day, followed by depulping in the afternoon and a dry fermentation period lasting 16–24 hours. The beans are typically washed two or three times before being dried using methods that include small "casa elbas," mechanical dryers, or parabolic dryers. Mechanical drying lasts between 25–40 hours, whereas other drying techniques may extend up to 15 days.
