Certifications have been very important in the coffee industry. Through them, many producers have had a positive social and environmental impact
Although they have been a vehicle to bring well-being and prosperity to the regions, we know that this impact can still continue to grow. These coffee regions in Colombia are made up of small producers with a great potential for quality, but low levels of productivity and deficiencies in post-harvest management.
The challenge of improving the quality of coffee and the livelihoods of our producers leads us to offer innovation in the production practices of special coffees in order to be sustainable and efficient in the long term.
Kaizen is born here: a program for the improvement of special coffees, derived from the Japanese term for continuous improvement.
Lohas Beans begins to develop a pilot project in Santander and its adventure continues throughout the rest of the country in regions that have varied conditions in terms of climate, culture and expression of coffee profiles. The company began this dream during 2017 and as a young project has faced several challenges that we will show you throughout this video.
Kaizen aims to generate a methodology to empower outstanding technicians and experienced producers in the formal measurement of the coffee production process. In this way, we can guarantee cup consistency and offer our customers the best process and profile of each coffee grower.
With this methodology we design procedures in accordance with the lives we touch to continue fulfilling our mission in the communities.
