Colombia is one of the largest coffee producing nations in the world alongside Brazil, Vietnam and Indonesia. Coffee was introduced to Colombia in the early 1800s and has traditionally been recognized for it’s high altitude and higher-quality Arabica coffees while boasting incredibly efficient supply lines.
Fredonia can be seen across the valley from Hacienda La Sierra.
Founded in 1830, Fredonia is one of the birthplaces of coffee in Colombia and its strong roots in coffee can still be seen today. The Colombian Coffee Federation has a regional cooperative there and small farmers bringing their harvest in with mules is still a common sight.
In recent years, the Colombian farmers with assistance from the Colombian Coffee Federation (FNC - Federación Nacional de cafeteros) have done a remarkable job in growing and promoting the export of genuine specialty coffee, producing impeccable quality.
Over the last few decades Colombia had a lot of issues with the Guerrilla movement FARC, which prohibited infrastructural and agricultural development in certain parts of Colombia. In the recent years, the Colombian government has negotiated a truce with FACR and many parts of Colombia have started to ﬂourish. This amazing coffee being grown in the Antioquia region of Colombia about 1,650 meters above sea level, mostly comprised of the Colombia and Castillo variety of Arabica coffee.
