Where conflict once reigned in Colombia, coffee beans now grow

Friday, October 20, 2017

Since the peace deal between the government and FARC rebels in 2016, coffee growers have begun to return to their farmlands to cultivate the mild arabica bean that had been inaccessible to global markets during decades of fighting.

Farmers who fled war in the Colombian Andes are returning to revive their abandoned land, cultivating coffee trees that are boosting global supplies of the highest-quality beans.
