The Coop is working to help its members work organically as they believe this is best for the prosperity and future of the farmers as well as the environment.

This Rio Magdalena lot is made up of coffee coming from the producer organisations that was cupped and assessed by the team led by Alberto in the lab at their mill. Each of the producers are small holders with between 1-4Ha of land. All the coffee is hand picked during the harvest, depulped and usually left to dry ferment for around 18 hours until ready. Subsequently, the coffee is washed and cleaned before being dried for between 10 -14 days in parabolic driers. Once dried the coffee in parchment is delivered to the local collection points of the group before being transported to Cosurca in Timbio town.
