Background Details

This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around Asociación de Productores Ecológicos de Planadas (ASOPEP), an organization operating within the municipality of Planadas in the department of Tolima, Colombia. On average, each producer cultivates coffee on 6 acres of land and relies on the income from coffee production for a living.   ASOPEP recently acquired their fair trade certification as another way to support and open new opportunities for coffee producers in the region.
