Giovay Lizcano owns Finca La Eliconias which is a small 3.5 ha farm with 3 ha of coffee. There are around 12000 trees of Tabi, pink bourbon, caturra & colombia. Each year he produces about 6000kg of coffee on the farm. He has been growing coffee for 28 years and a member of Asorcafe for 19 years. This coffee is a traditional washed coffee that is pulped, fermented and then dried in a parabolic drier on African beds.

Asorcafe was founded on July 11, 2003 in the town of Pedegral in Inza and currently there are 290 members who are part of the association. The association was set up to help these producers become organised to sell their coffees as specialty but also provide a framework and structure to further their education and progression to improve the economic and social conditions for themselves, their families and their community.

These small producers work on plots of land between 1.8 – 2 ha in size and farm coffee up to altitudes of 2100 masl. The farms are planted with caturra, typica, bourbon, tabi, castillo and some pink bourbon. Traditionally the coffee is fully washed and once harvested the coffee is then pulped and fermented for between 20-40 hours depending on the local environment. After this the coffee is washed and any immatures removed and then it is dried for between 8 – 15 days weather depending in parabolic driers.

Siruma our parnters in Colombia started working with ASORCAFE in 2021 after establishing initial connection with them. Asorcafe deliver samples to Siruma where they are cupped and assessed for their cup quality and making sure the physical specifications meet our standards for moisture, yield and cup quality. After this the coffee is delivered to Siruma’s warehouse in Manizales and Asorcafe paid immediately for the coffees.
