Colombia Popayán Winter Harvest
This coffee was harvested in winter by APROCEP: a group of around 100 producers, mostly women, who farm outside the Colombian city of Popayán. The coffee is grown, picked and processed by individual farmers and, while their properties are modestly sized at 3-5 hectares, their processing infrastructure is impressively advanced. APROCEP is a farmer-managed organization. Members are able to sell their best coffees (to us!), and the rest is sold collectively, mostly through local channels. The group is both tight-knit and supportive of individual members pursuing their own achievements. We recommend celebrating this spirit of community by brewing up a cup for a nearby pal!
