Nelson Flores Erazo is part of the Asoproa group who are members of the cooperative Cosurca who have been working in this region of Cauca for over 25 years. The Cooperative have several programs with a real focus especially on empowering their members with education and training to help them prosper post conflict. Nelson Flores Erazo has been growing coffee for 5 years organically and he has been working organically for over 12 years. Through the cooperative he has received support to help improve his infrastructure with real focus on the farm’s parabolic driers.

On the farm the coffee is planted among banana, guamo and citrus trees which help to provide shade. During the harvest from May to September the coffee is hand-picked every 8 – 10 days and then pulped on the same day of collection. The coffee is then left to ferment for 12-15 hours in concrete tanks before then being washed and then dried in a parabolic drier for 8 – 10 days.
