This washed process coffee is a great example of the work a co-operative can produce. The San Lorenzo group are part of the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Alto Occidente de Caldas who come from the Rio Sucio municipality of Caldas.
It’s a story that’s familiar in coffee, war stricken lands and a dark history, this coffee is a shining light in what used to be a very dangerous place. Previously inhabited by Paramilitaries and revolutionist groups this region was not known for its specialty coffee, but having relieved tensions in the area its recently been possible to produce some great quality coffees.
