A Family Business

The Julius Meinl family has had a deep passion for great coffee for over five generations. Many families in Tolima Department, Colombia, have businesses focused on the same passion for coffee. These families are carefully passing on their experience and knowledge about coffee from generation to generation. But today it’s getting harder and harder for them to stay in the business.

Julius Meinl supports Colombian farmers helping, to increase production efficiency for them and their future generations.

Growing a business for future generations

Julius Meinl has launched an initiative to support Colombian coffee farmers. The idea is to enhance farmers’ business by helping them with trainings,
technical assistance, coffee dryers and UTZ certification.
The farmers can then increase production efficiency and their profits, meaning that they can invest more in their own business and future generations.

Agronomist assistance

We provide farmers with individual trainings and technical support in order to help them increase production efficiency for a healthier and more sustainable business growth.

UTZ certifications

We help farmers to get UTZ certification in the first year and to renew it in subsequent years. This enables them to sell their coffee at better market prices.

Coffee dryers

Dryers help farmers to sell their coffee at higher prices. Today they can’t afford the equipment. We provided 25 drying facilities, installed and maintained them.
