Why love it?
This coffee is produced by ASOPEP (Asociacion de Productores Ecologicos de Planadas), a Cooperative with 367 members, which is setting an example for sustainability (they’re certified Organic under USDA, EU, and Japanese standards) and gender equity (women hold about half of leadership positions within the Cooperative). Their current - and most ambitious - project yet, is the construction of a central final processing facility for all their coffees, complete with packaging facilities, warehouses, offices, a supply store, meeting rooms and offices, and a ‘coffee school’ to train the next generation of coffee professionals - from farm to cup. You can follow their progress at www.asopep.org/cas
