Jose Omar Flor has been working with coffee for most of his life as well as growing food crops alongside this such as bean and maiz.  Jose is part of the ASOCAMP group who are part of the Cooperative Cosurca who have been working hard in the communities they work with around the Popayan region. The Cooperative have several programs with a real focus especially on empowering their members with education and training to help them prosper post conflict. Currently Jose does not produce coffee organically but the Cooperative are working with their members to try and help them grow coffee in more harmony with the environment.

On the farm the coffee is planted among banana & Guama trees which help to provide shade. During the harvest from May to September the coffee is hand-picked and then pulped on the same day of collection. The coffee is then left to ferment for 14 hours before then being washed and then dried in a parabolic drier for 8 – 10 days.
