This coffee comes from the region Andes in the department of Antioquia and 6 small producers all with between 1 - 5ha of land that we selected to blend together to make this lot.
This lot of coffee comes from various small holders who belong to the Cooperative DelosAndes, who have supported these growers and there families for generations in this region. The Co-operative are very active in trying to protect their members and have introduced a pension program for the members as well as having programs to encourage the next generation of coffee farmers.
This lot has come from farms from 1-5 ha in size where the coffee is picked, pulped and fermented (usually dry) for between 18-36 hours depending on weather and exact altitude. After this the coffee is then dried on roof patios or in parabolic driers for 10-14 days. From here they then deliver it to the coop where they store it and grade it
