Lida Rivas and Her Wonderful Coffee Farm.

Lida Rivas and Her Wonderful Coffee Farm.
We’re excited to introduce our newest addition to Farmers Union Coffee Roasters.

This single-origin specialty coffee comes from Narino Colombia. For the past 3 years, we have been actively sourcing direct-trade coffees from Lida Rivas’ farm in the Village of La Union. This year, we were lucky enough to purchase her entire harvest – and now we can offer this unique coffee exclusively through us! For now, this coffee will only be available in our cafe, and our email subscribers are the first to know!  Lida is committed to growing coffee using organic techniques but does not have a certification.

This coffee offers a flavor profile unlike anything else. Every cup is packed with complexity and provides a silky body that highlights hints of cherry and tropical fruits. It’s truly one of a kind!  

At Farmers Union Coffee Roasters, we understand the importance of directly trading with farmers – it allows us to pay them a fair price for their incredible coffees while also offering you access to amazing blends roasted to perfection. That’s why we are fully committed to working with Lida Rivas for many years – so that her very special blend remains available for all of our loyal customers.

We know you’ll be as delighted as we are with this coffee, so go ahead and give it a try! We promise that it won’t disappoint.
