Meet The Producers
Colombia has a diverse range of coffee on offer from small farms that supply co-operatives to large estates producing over 10000kg of coffee from their own mill. The San Lorenzo co-operative has history dating back to 1963 when a group of farmers decided to collaborate on their production. 98% of the members are small hold producers harvesting and processing their coffee on their small farms.
Harvesting & Processing
Coffee is hand harvested by family members and processed as washed coffee. Typically coffee is pulped and fermented on the farm before drying in the sun or under a polytunnel. Once dried the coffee is delivered to the co-operative mill and the top scoring lots are combined to create a range of high quality lots.
