The institutional coffee marketing process is structured based on the purchase guarantee: from the base price quoted on the New York Stock Exchange, coffee quality is rewarded through the yield factor process and specialty coffee programs. In addition, price protection tools and a model for exporting coffee in small quantities, which contribute to profitability of Colombian coffee-growing families, are made available to producers.

Coffee in Colombia

In Colombia, over 2.2 million people depend economically and directly on coffee farming, that is, about 25% of the rural population in 22 of the country’s 32 departments and in 600 municipalities (53% of the total). 

But coffee, in addition to being a driving force for regional economies, continues having an important weight in the Colombian economy, as it represents over 8% of total exports and contributes about 12% of the Gross Domestic Agricultural Product. All this is based on an economy of family farms in which 96% of producers have less than 5 hectares planted with coffee.
