A portion of the proceeds from this 1998 release which spans 1982-1996 went to Coffee Kids, a New England-based non-profit organization whose goal was to improve conditions for coffee growers and their families in coffee-producing countries. Most but not all of those countries are in South America, and many of artists heard on this rewarding CD are South American.

Like many other Putumayo compilations, Putumayo Blend: Music of the Coffee Lands is as surprising as it is enriching.

    Great mix of styles!

    Great mix of styles, languages, and some instrumental tracks. The variety of tempos, and the more interesting rhythms from Africa and South America keep this one in my short stack of favorite CD's.
