Fudam is a 300 member cooperative which was started in the year 2000 by 7 growers who got together with a shared vision of sustainable agriculture as well as environmental protection and development. These growers are in and around the town of La Union in the state of Narino. One of the unique features of Narino is the area’s very high elevations. So high in fact that the people living in the towns walk DOWN to the farms. Through most of the coffee world folks would hike UP to the farms as the coffee is usually at the higher elevation.

FUDAM’s growers are firmly dedicated to the principles of sustainability just as they were from day one.  This is in spite of mounting pressures to rely on chemical inputs. When asked why the association continues to farm the way they always have…”This is just how we live, these are our values and our way of life”.

Roasts

Depending on origin, growing region, and style of preparation, every coffee carries a unique set of physical and flavor characteristics, affected by such factors as longitude and latitude, amount of sun, shade, rainfall, cloud cover, soil content, nitrogen and minerals, and other factors.

As roasters, our job is to recognize and identify for our guests those special flavor characteristics that define a particular coffee, and determine the roasting methodology that will enhance these very special flavors.

Coffee Exchange offers 5 distinct roasts.  Each coffee is available in the roast(s) that suits its finest characteristics.

American Roast: Light brown in color with a dry surface, this roast is characterized by a light body and a bright, piquant flavor.

Full City Roast: A little darker, this roast creates a rich, sweet, full-bodied and complex cup. 

Vienna Roast:  Even darker, this roast brings the ambrosial coffee oils to the surface of the bean and brews a savory, pleasantly bittersweet cup.

French Roast: This roast results in a dark, oily bean with a bold flavor and a heady aroma. 

Espresso Roast: As dark as possible in pursuit of a densely flavored cup.
