unique history of proyecto renacer- the project that invented red bomb although they dont currently produce it on site. 

proyecto renacer was created in order to improve the lives of those in the la sierra neighborhood. led by brothers cristian and jhonatan raigosa, proyecto renacer is located in the hills of the city of medellin in the neighborhood of la sierra. it is composed of more than 30 coffee growers with 13 small farms (2 hectares on average) and they involve the addiction recovery center hogar casa claret.

these two brothers are the real definition of coffee-preneurs. cristian has emerged in the colombian coffee scene as one of the best roasters and baristas bringing direct knowledge of specialty coffee consumption to the team. while jhonatan has worked in field production, building critical producer relations, and quality control tying together the administration of the project

the project began when, by chance, they received a sample of a coffee from the la sierra neighborhood. they were surprised to find a coffee from medellin, this was something unusual. after profiling and sampling the coffee they found an extraordinary product with some very striking attributes that made them want to contact the producer to know more.

when they first ventured into the neighborhood to start developing the project they were uncertain because the sector for decades was practically a war zone with violence and disputes of drug trafficking. it had even been documented in a movie!  nevertheless, their passion overcame prejudice and they went to a meeting at la sierra with the producer, don gabriel. 

once they were there, they found a totally different panorama to the one they had in mind. in la sierra there were more producers than don gabriel with great quality coffee and surrounded by excellent geographic conditions for coffee growing. in this way, they came up with the idea of coordinating the coffee of all the small farms in the neighborhood, processing it in order to add value through fermentation processes. thus, proyecto renacer could support, in a small amount, colombian agriculture and its low prices paid in their cooperatives.  in conclusion, a positive impact for the sierra community. 

through these products, it creates the opportunity to offer consumers of medellin and the world an experience with specialty coffees, changing their perspective of the neighborhood from the one violence torn area to the beautiful coffee producing sector it is. today, la sierra is  a neighborhood where you can travel to without any fear, and experience the remarkable tranquility that this mountain top neighborhood offers.
