FARM DIRECT ORGANIC Colombia, Tolima ASOPEP

The mission of the ASOPEP cooperative is “To be known as an association that creates opportunities for the personal growth of its members, protects the environment, innovates in commercial business processes and is always in the vanguard of specialty coffee producers worldwide.” The Cooperative represents 160 family producers, each of which benefits from their membership by receiving access to coffee quality education and training, which helps each member receive a higher price for their coffees.

 

Certified organic coffee is a rarity in Colombia which has been suffering from a climate-change related disease known as Roya or “Leaf Rust”, the treatment for which typically involves small amounts of chemical herbicide administered to individual coffee trees. ASOPEP is a standout example of an organic cooperative that maintains its strict certification even during times when many farmers in the region are affected by the tree disease.

 

In the cup, this coffee is bright with green apple, raspberry and cocoa nib. Naturally medium bodied and exceptionally sweet, we roast this coffee to accentuate the more cloying sugars which provide a nice balance to the effervescent acidity.
