About Black Condor Coffee

Emmanuel from the Black Condor Coffee Project

In the heart of Gaitania, Tolima, Emmanuel, a coffee enthusiast from a long line of coffee experts, began his journey into the world of coffee in 2006. Learning about processes, quality, and varieties fueled his passion for crafting specialty coffees. However, like many farmers, he faced the challenge of a lack of a central processing hub. In 2016, Emmanuel and his family took action, creating a coffee processing center benefiting over 15 villages in Gaitania.

The Black Condor Project was born in 2016, focusing on key aspects:

  • Establishing a washing station to support farmers affected by war.
  • Ensuring fair payment, offering rates 18-20% above market.
  • Hosting workshops on processes, fermentation, drying, and cupping.
  • Fostering competition among producers to promote their coffees.

 

Today, The Black Condor Project has over 100 independent coffee producers, making a real impact on regional prosperity and economy.
