Colombian coffee

Colombia is well known for its coffee. The fictional character Juan Valdez, used in advertisements for the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, has become an icon in popular culture, instantly associated with Colombian coffee. In 2018, the country was the third largest coffee grower in the world, producing 14.2 million 60-kilogram bags of coffee. About 16 percent of the coffee imported by the United States from Colombia was Fair Trade certified in 2016. Fair trade is a movement which aims to improve conditions for workers in agriculture and the environmental sustainability of the crops harvested. In the same year, 22 million dollars of the imported coffee from Colombia was organic.
