Meta is an isolated rural Colombian region which, over the years, has suffered the violence of the war
and the spread of illegal crops.
It is a region of ancient coffee-growing tradition and one whose production of high-quality coffee may be the driver for its redemption.
The Lavazza Foundation has joined forces with the Carcafè Foundation in a project of
support for one hundred coffee producers in the Meta region which, for two consecutive years,
have obtained Rainforest Alliance certification. The cultivation techniques, as well as the
profitability of their product, are increasing.
In addition, the Lavazza Foundation has supported a project to improve access to technology and the internet in the remote areas of coffee cultivation, created by the ALO and MAKAIA organisations.
