This limited edition coffee has hints of citrus and stone fruit that brighten a smooth bittersweet chocolate base. Pair with a poblano pepper and cotija cheese omelet, a sweet bun, and a day spent preparing for a feast with friends and family.


Located in the highland regions of Cauca, the Paez (who also call themselves Nasa, or “the people”) is the largest indigenous group in Colombia. Fondo Paez was founded in 1992, with the goal of keeping alive traditional agricultural knowledge and indigenous culture buried by centuries of conflict and oppression.
