Madremonte is a name inspired by the women who contribute to this coffee, plus a little bit of Colombian mythology. This is a coffee from female producers who are paid a premium for delivering quality coffees for a program run by our partner of many years now, Coocentral.

According to Colombian mythology, Madremonte (Mother of the Forest) is the protector of nature and the forest animals, and unforgiving when humans enter their domains to alter or destroy them. She can be identified with Mother Nature and Mistress of the Animals.

This coffee is from women producers/farmers that are members of Coocentral (Cooperative in Central Huila) special women's program.
