HISTORY: 
Pitalito and Timana, Huila, are home to the 96 independent women who are part of Forest Academy and the: HUILA CONDOR PROJECT. These group of farmer women deliver their coffee to a facility in Huila, where the quality team receives and reviews it. This region aspires to create change and become a benchmark in the world of specialty coffee. - Driven by quality, we consistently host workshops with our producers, covering processes, fermentation, drying, and cupping their own coffees. - We ensure direct and fair payment, offering between 18-20% above market rate, which equates to $350,000 COP per carga, with 50% paid directly to the women's account. - We host an internal competition among producers to promote and give visibility to their coffees and improvements. THE FOREST SILVER CUP and we're eager to involve roasters to travel here and be part of this project firsthand. Through this project, we not only impact the industry and the lives of these women but also contribute to their community, families, and the overall progress of the region. This initiative that focuses on coffee production in specific regions of Colombia, collaborating closely with farming communities. The objective is to assist them in enhancing their processes, improving quality, ensuring fair payment and establishing traceability.
