Cafés Finos de Corquín (CAFICO) is a company that works with small producers and is committed to protecting the environment. It is important here to promote socio-economic development and gender equality. This enables a better life for families who live and work there.
CAFICO’s managing directors Mr. Walter and Mr. Sergio Romero are already farmers, the third generation, who are very proud of them! They emphasise that growing coffee in their area is not only a way of making a living, but it’s also part of tradition for the region and important to culture.
CAFICO’s work focusses on both the productivity of the farmers and the quality of the coffee. They provide farmers with regular training on best farming practices. Maintenance and compliance with the goals and requirements of certifications are in the foreground.
In order to improve the quality of their coffee, CAFICO developed its own quality laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment.
CAFICO’s commitment to sustainable growth and life goes beyond coffee growing. Important goals are the implementation of many social projects: such as the restoration of a women’s hospital in Corquín and the donation of eco-filters for clean drinking water.
