This producer group is part of the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Alto Occidente de Caldas which was established in 1964. The San Lorenzo indigenous group is based in the Rio Sucio municipality of Caldas. Each farmer has approximately 0.5 Ha of land in which they have about 2500 coffee trees.
During the harvest, the families will work with their neighbors to select ripe cherry before de-pulping in micro-beneficios where they will then de-pulp and ferment the coffee in water for 16 -24 hours depending on the weather. The coffee is then washed and then put out to dry on small drying patios on the roofs of the houses where they will dry it for between 8 – 14 days depending on the weather.
This is a deep sweet dark roast coffee, with lots of sweet notes of brown sugar and caramel. Velvety syrupy mouthfeel that makes a great coffee to kickstart your day.
