This coffee comes from small growers in Gaitania Tolima, about 70% of this coffee is grown by the indigenous community “Nasa Wesx”. The Nasa Wesx live in different indigenous territories in Cauca, Huila and Tolima.
Gaitania is located 40 km southwest of the remote Planadas, Tolima. This region is well recognized by the specialty coffee industry, coffees from this region are known to be citric and complex.
Cherries are pulped at the end of the picking day, later fermented for 25 hours without water, afterwards washed and placed on raised bed and parabolic dryers to ideal moisture content. Every lot is cupped and analyzed separately at ASCISP (Cooperative located in Gaitania) lab in order to ensure quality standards. If a lot is cupping above 87, it is keep aside as a microlot. Lots are stored at ACISP Coop until approved by Cofinet QC team.
