SINGLE ORIGIN - Espresso Roast
COLOMBIA | LA ORQUIDEA
At the end of 2014, a total of 10 coffee farmers with an entrepreneurial spirit joined forces to form the Asoprocafee, a coffee cooperative in Tolima, Colombia.
Today this cooperative boasts for over 50 producers and are committed to improving the quality and sustainability of their coffee and getting better prices for their produce.
The cooperative has played a major role in improving the quality of life of many coffee-growing families in the Planadas municipality.
La Orquíeda, a region within the Tolima department, is at an approximate altitude of 1500 to 2100 masl.
The volcanic ash from Los Nevados natural park coupled with the favourable climatic conditions is what gives this coffee its distinct depth and flavour.
Asoprocafees is a Fairtrade certified organic cooperative and carries out multiple infrastructure projects in Tolima such as building warehouses and roads. All farmers associated with the cooperative receive regular education and information on harvest and processing methods. Growers are able to use the latest cultivation and processing techniques.
NOTE: This single origin is generally roasted to order - all orders are processed on Mondays and roasted, packed and posted out by Wednesday.
