Description

Producer Noé Tunja has been a member of the Asorcafe group for 2 years. This lot comes from the El Altico farm which is 5 hectares with a coffee growing area of just 3.5 hectares. It is situated at 1850 masl and produces caturra and tabi varietals.

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 partners 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.
