Colombian coffee development

It is recorded that coffee was introduced into Colombia in the late 18th century through Jesuit priests among the Spanish colonists. The first batch of coffee was planted in Santander and Boyaca provinces and then spread to other regions. However, during the period 1899-1903, war broke out in the Colombian country, resulting in a sharp decline in the population of coffee growers and a large number of plantations abandoned. When the war ended, in order to save the coffee industry, the government began to integrate the wasteland and divide it into small plots, selling it to farmers at very low prices, allowing them to grow coffee and other crops and start a new life. By 1912, coffee had developed and accounted for 50% of Colombia's total exports.

In 1920, at the proposal of a farmer, the Colombian Coffee Union was formed to protect the interests of small coffee farms. Since then, the organization has grown, and in 1927 led to the more authoritative and regulated Colombian National Coffee producers Association, or FNC. Since its establishment, FNC has taken a series of measures, including strict quality control, the establishment of the National Coffee Research Center, the creation of Juan Valdez Juan Valdez and his mule Conchita to promote Colombian Coffee, etc., to enhance the global competitiveness and influence of Colombian Coffee.

It has strong adaptability to altitude and has a good flavor in the high altitude area, but the production capacity is relatively reduced.
