La Piramide - 1

In the south western corner of Colombia, lies the beautiful but hard to access municipality of Inzá. Because of its remoteness, coffee from here has traditionally been sold via intermediaries, losing its traceability and identity along the route to market. In 2004 the Asociación de Caficultores del Oriente Caucano (Asorcafe) was founded to change this. It set up its own warehouses, bought parchment direct from members and provided the marketing and trade structure needed to obtain better prices. With the success of the association, membership has risen to some 400 small growers which produce around 1,500 bags per year. At high altitudes and under semi-shade, the cherries ripen slowly increasing the intensity of flavours, resulting in a cup we couldn’t resist on the cupping table. We trust you’ll enjoy it every bit as much as we do!
