The “Cooperativa de Caficultores de Manizales” cooperative was founded in 1960 and is today home to more than 3,600 allied partner producers, most of them smallholders. The coop operates in eleven municipalities throughout the department and with 15 centers of atención al productor, where producers can sell their coffee and access agricultural support and guidance from agronomists who work with the cooperative.
This lot contains Castillo, Colombia and Caturra coffee varietals that where grown at 1600-1900 meters above sea level
This lot was processed using a washed process, with a fermentation stage that lasted 18 hours. The coffee was then partly mechanically dried and finished drying on raised beds for 13 days. The final result is a classic flavored Colombian coffee with great quality (scoring 86 points on the SCA scale) with notes of dark chocolate with sweet lime and lemongrass acidity.
