Reunion Island's relationship with the Las Hermosas farmer project originated in 2004 with the discovery of an exemplary Colombian coffee being grown in a co-operative in the South Tolima region. Reunion Island supports the co-operative through the donation of funds to encourage projects that increase the standard of living in the area.
Currently, they have supported numerous projects:
Cupping lab in Ibague with the equipment required for coffee quality analysis
Complete overhaul of sanitation and water purification systems for seven schools in the region
Set-up of multiple computer labs within schools in the region for business and educational use
Better social and economic conditions also create an environment where premium quality production is possible. As evidence of this, farmers from the Las Hermosas co-operative placed 1st, 3rd and 7th in Colombia's Cup of Excellence competition.
