Description

This micro lot is made up of a number of a few small holders from the Piendamo region of Cauca.

These producers are part of the COMEPCAFE Cooperative based in Piendamo, Cauca where it was established in 2010. The Cooperative has 1400 families spread across 7 areas in 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 farms in traditional beneficios on small pulping machines before 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.
