Social Initiative

 

As expressed by our mission, Café EntreVolcanes, is a movement that awakens awareness and positively transforms coffee consumers and producers, radiating well-being and integrating them, while providing happiness to those who take it. A tool for prosperity for young people who can dream themselves in a better Colombian countryside.

We want to dream big together with the peasants of the rural community: El Mirador and La Alcancía. We seek to engage especially with the youngsters, strengthening initiatives that generate well-being and happiness. To give skills so that they can pursue the life they have reasons to value.

Our collective initiative:

Laboratory of Innovation of Local Tradition (Agro – Culture – Social Value Added)

  • Café EntreVolcanes (Beans / Grinded) national and international sales: (Currently in place)

To purchase green coffee beans from neighboring farms (small producers – They get a better price than the one from the National Federation of Coffee Growers or private  buyers) We establish a direct link between producers and the final consumer without intermediaries.

  • Living Classrooms:

Where they are taught – Workshops / Technical training / Exchanges / design processes. Starting point for local enterprise initiatives.

  • La Vereda:

Local coffee shop – Café + restaurant + cooperative (Convenio, Libano) – Managed by the young people from the rural community. Tourists / locals – It allows them to know living conditions. (Conferences / gatherings / cultural agenda / activities) Local allies. (Fruit / Medicinal / Cocoa / Knowledge and tradition – value added products – try to reach the final consumer with quality, color, stories and attention) (Sales alliances in different urban areas of Colombia, eg Pereira, Manizales, Bogotá, Cali, Bucaramanga etc)
