Description

The Coop

The Association of Indigenous and Campesino Agroecological Producers of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Serranía del Perijá ANEI, was founded in 1995 by Aurora Izquierdo, the first indigenous woman of the Arhuaco tribe of the Yewrwa community to obtain a university degree. Izquierdo studied in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá, with the objective of organizing the local economies of our indigenous and campesino communities. She utilized coffee as a tool to secure the cultural permanence of those indigenous communities in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Serranía del Perijá, in the north of Colombia, through the implementation of eco-sustainble programs and projects that fortify organizational processes that reclaim the social, economic and cultural rights of members, promoting food safety all at the same time contributing to the world with an excellent natural product, organic coffee grown in harmony with nature. The production and commercialization of ANEI’s organic coffee is implemented in a context of harmony and respect for Mother Earth.

Most coffee packaging comes with a major environmental footprint. Plastic + foil-lined bags (used extensively in specialty coffee & tea) cannot be recycled and last for thousands of years in landfills ...

Merchants of Green Coffee has a strict ‘no plastic policy’ and we have been selling our coffees in what we like to call “premium brown bags” for over 25 years. (And we operate almost 100% plastic-free ... packaging always being an area for improvement)

Our "premium brown bags" are composed of 100% natural materials: post-consumer kraft paper, PLA (corn-based) lining, and a tin-tie. To recycle: Remove the tin-tie and recycle the bag.

A label/seal is required to ensure our coffees are fresh, traceable, and free from tampering. Our standard Merchants’ label/seal is composed of paper and adhesive, and can be recycled along with the bag.
