Increasing the Adoption of Centralized Coffee Wetmills

The Huila Central Mill Project is a two-year program that will pilot a sustainable and replicable wetmill model for Colombia. By demonstrating the economic viability of centralized wetmilling, the project aims to influence coffee farmers to transition from in-farm wetmills to centralized wetmills. The Central Mill pilot will work with approximately 350 coffee-growing families and will work to strengthen the producer business group that will own the mill.To date the project has generated nearly $400,000 in financial benefits for the local coffee-producing community.
