Our story

Our story

Native Root is a specialty coffee producer and exporter company founded in 2017. The company was founded by Ervin Liz who is a third-generation coffee farmer and Nasa indigenous. In 2021, Native Root became a family business consisting of four women and three men. We are proud to be a company made up predominantly of women. All our coffee is grown, harvested and processed with a lot of love and dedication in ancestral lands of Cauca. For three generations we have worked to have high quality coffees adhering to the traditions of our grandparents. It is a legacy of years of work, wisdom and pride that we bring to you today connecting you with our native roots.
