Giraldo is a town that currently sits in an area where the settlement of the Arro indigenous community once thrived. Giraldo has been traditionally a producer of star anise, however it has migrated its economic activity towards coffee in the recent past.

Giraldo is currently in the process of  one of the country’s largest infrastructure transformation since this municipality will be one of the access points to one of the largest tunnel in Latin America. Its inhabitants fear for the environmental impact that this mega infrastructure project may generate in the coffee industry business due to new business and job opportunities. 

Nevertheless, Giraldo and its coffee producers see an opportunity for them to be some of the best washed coffee producers in Antioquia. Our partners, AROMA GIRALDINO, have worked together with the ambitious coffee producers to realize this dream!

AROMA GIRALDINO association is formed by more than 30 coffee growers with small (around 3 hectares) farms located in different villages in the municipality of Giraldo. Miguel, its leader, has an 8 year background working with the community, pre-selecting and buying the lots that meet the quality needs.
