Collection: Colombia

Coffee arrived in Colombia in the late 1700s with Spanish Jesuit priests. The first coffee plants were planted in Santander and Boyaca departments in the country's north. By the 19th century, coffee had spread throughout the country, with a smaller average farm size than in other Latin American-producing countries. Colombia's coffee industry received a boost with the formation of the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia (FNC) in 1927, and Colombia quickly established itself as a major coffee-growing region. Colombia produces only Arabica coffee and has bounced back from the coffee-leaf rust outbreak in the early 2010s through disease-resistant plants and preventative techniques.
