A Great Investment Begins with an Even Greater Story - Azahar Coffee

Azahar, one of Acumen’s investments in Colombia, is focused on ensuring farmers’ profitability by establishing direct relationships with both rural coffee farmers and roasters, and cutting out expensive middlemen. Azahar commits to purchasing green coffee beans from rural growers in Colombia’s post-conflict areas at fixed premium prices, typically 50-70% above local going market rate. Azahar also provides training and technical assistance to farmers in order to help them produce the highest-quality, single-origin coffee beans—enabling them to sell to demanding specialty buyers at premium prices.
