FUDAM is a cooperative made up of 300 growers centered around the small town of La Unión in Nariño, Colombia. The vision of FUDAM is to promote Colombian coffee producers, elevate coffee quality, and improve the livelihoods of growers while embrac- ing the ecology and environmental sustainability of the region. All of the member producers are organic-certified and Rainforest Alliance-certified smallholder farms.


In the past, FUDAM’s coffees have been prominent in some of our core blends, and we are excited to feature a standalone lot as a Single Origin on our seasonal menu this year. Ruby is excited to offer this particular washed lot featuring FUDAM’s women led farms or Manos de Mujeres. After picking, the cherries are depulped, then undergo a 16-24 hour dry fermentation before being thoroughly washed. They are then dried in mechanical dryers and the drying process is complete in under 2 days.


Our head roaster, Emily, visited some of these farmers in Colombia in September of 2023. She visited their warehouse, and spent time at La Bohemia, the farm of Raquel Lasso, the head of FUDAM. Increasing the quality of their coffee so producers can obtain higher prices and entice younger family members to keep growing coffee is high on the priority list for FUDAM. Raquel envisions a school in the future so that the next generation can see and learn the potential and that they can make improvements to earn a decent living. Additionally, current member producers can learn to increase the quality of their coffee enough to be sold as more premium microlots. We are excited to see what’s in store for the future of FUDAM.
