Notes of Raspberry, Pear, Sugared Almond and Milk Chocolate
Diomira Ordonez has been working with the Asoproa group for the past four years and is now growing all the coffee organically working in harmony with the environment and taking care of the land. Diomira is part of the Asoproa group based in Argelia who are joined to the Cooperative Cosurca who have been working hard in the communities they work with around the Popayan region. The Cooperative have several programs with a real focus especially on empowering their members with education and training to help them prosper post conflict.
On the farm the coffee is planted among citrus and pineapple trees which help to provide shade. During the harvest from May to September the coffee is hand-picked and then pulped on the same day of collection. The coffee is then left to ferment for 14 hours in concrete tanks before then being washed and then dried in a parabolic drier for 8 – 10 days.
