PLANADAS~ ORGANIC COFFEE FROM COLOMBIA
COLOMBIAN - FAIR-TRADE - ORGANIC
Introducing our new season Colombian variety, Planadas.
The picking of these beans commenced on in May for the main crop - running though to August. The fully washed coffee is sundried in the temperate climate ranging 16-24 degrees celsius. The beans arrived in Australia in September and roasted on demand weekly.
The farmers' Association was established to benefit from fairer trade and thus improving the quality of life of many families of coffee farmers, 10 peasant entrepreneurs of Planadas created Asoprocafees at the end of 2014.
The idea gained strength amongst the local community and 20 more farmers joined the association, forming a total of 30 associates with whom this great project of socioeconomic improvement was launched. Today the group already has 59 coffee growers committed to quality and sustainable production.
In 2020, the ASOPROCEFEES association has grown to incorporate many more local members , collecting over 655,000 kilos of parchment annually.
