From the importer - 

 

Ferney Quipo is 31 years old and own Finca EL Lago which is 1.5 ha in size at 1800 masl and has 7000 trees of Caturra, Castillo & Colombia. He has been a member of Asorcafe for 8 years since he started growing coffee. The coffee is a traditional washed and undergoes 36 hours of fermentation after pulping and then is dried in a parabolic tent until it reaches 11%.

 

Asorcafe was founded on July 11, 2003 in the town of Pedegral in Inza and currently there are 290 members who are part of the association. The association was set up to help these producers become organised to sell their coffees as specialty but also provide a framework and structure to further their education and progression to improve the economic and social conditions for themselves, their families and their community.

 

These small producers work on plots of land between 1.8 – 2 ha in size and farm coffee up to altitudes of 2100 masl. The farms are planted with caturra, typica, bourbon, tabi, castillo and some pink bourbon. Traditionally the coffee is fully washed and once harvested the coffee is then pulped and fermented for between 20-40 hours depending on the local environment. After this the coffee is washed and any immatures removed and then it is dried for between 8 – 15 days weather depending in parabolic driers.

 

Siruma our parnters in Colombia started working with ASORCAFE in 2021 after establishing initial connection with them. Asorcafe deliver samples to Siruma where they are cupped and assessed for their cup quality and making sure the physical specifications meet our standards for moisture, yield and cup quality. After this the coffee is delivered to Siruma’s warehouse in Manizales and Asorcafe paid immediately for the coffees.
