COOPCAFER, or the Cooperativa Departamental de Caficultores Risaralda, is a worker-owned and administered coffee organization in Colombia. It was formed to collectively produce and distribute goods and services for its coffee associates and the communities in which they operate. Their mission is to guarantee the commercialization of coffee at a just price and offer complementary social development programs to their members. Having gone through many changes, in structure and names since the late 1950’s, COOPCAFER came into its current form in 1994. Today, an estimated 3, 274 people are members of the organization, with 17 offices and 16 shops located throughout the department of Risaralda, Colombia.
