The Anei cooperative consists of indigenous Arahuacos, Cogis, Guiguas, Kankuamo, as well as campesino groups among its 700+ members scattered through the southeastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. ANEI was founded in 1995 by Aurora Izquierdo. As the first Arhuaco woman of the Yewrwa community to obtain a university degree, her goal was to organize the local indigenous and farmer economies. She used coffee as a tool to secure the future of those communities through the implementation of eco-sustainable programs and projects, strengthening organizational processes and reclaiming the social, economic, and cultural rights of members. ANEI produces high-quality organic coffee grown in harmony with, and with respect for, Mother Earth.
