More details:

This coffee comes from five different municipalities located in the western and central mountain ranges, whose soils are derived from volcanic ash, which have been traditionally cultivated with coffee as well as other crops such a banana and leguminous plants.

The farms that contributed to this lot are located in the municipalities of Morales, Piendamó, Caldono, Totoro and Toribio Cauca, specifically in the reservations of Chimborazo, Agua Negra, La María, Las Mercedes, La Aguada, Toribio and
Gevala. The farmers here are members of the Nasa (Páez), Misak (Guambianos) and Totoroes Indegenous groups.

These farmers are part of the COMEPCAFE Cooperative based in Piendamo, Cauca where it was established on 2010. The Cooperative has 1400 families spread across 7 areas with Cauca with 1600 ha of coffee farms. The farms are traditionally planted with castillo and colombia with a small portion (5%) of typica an caturra. The Coop helps to support their members with technical support, commercialisation of the coffees, food security programs as well as a pension program looking to protect the producers in the future. The areas that these coffees come from are still very much involved in the troubles with them being heavily influenced by the FARC and illicit drug trade making life very difficult for these producers.

The coffees are pulped on the farm in a traditional beneficio on small pulping machines before then being dry fermented in tiled tanks overnight for 12-16 hours. After this the coffees are then dried for 7- 10 days in parabolic tents on raised beds.
