COFFEE CERTIFICATIONS IN COLOMBIA


The types of coffee certificates that exist in Colombia

Several decades ago, a special program called “The 100% Colombian Coffee Program” was lauched by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation. The coffee brands that are part of this program guarantee traceability and guarantee of origin through verious certification that vary basically by área of acceptance though they all guarantee more or less the same points: origin and quality. The group of certificates are: 

Denomination of Origin, the  Protected Geographical Indication, and the Certification Marks. Depending on the country, one or other certificated may be the one accepted or recognized.

1)- Protected Geographical Indication (PGI): (Spanish: Indicaciones Geograficas) used in South America and Europe. This certificate demostrates connection between the origin claimed and the qaulity of the product. Non authorized users are not allowed to use the PGI even if their product comes from such geographic place, given that not only the origin of the product is guaranteed but also the high-quality standards implied by the PGI.

2)- Denomination of Origin Colombian Coffee (Spanish: denominación de Origen Protegida): certification accepted in Europa

3)- Certification of Marks – (Spanish: Marcas de Certificacion MC): accepted mainly in the USA.

4)- Fair Trade-this allows us to know that the farmers have sold their coffee through a cooperative, thus receiving a fair rate for their coffee.
