Single Origin Micro-lot, Women's Group
Warm and comforting, this coffee is really something special. We are excited to roast these beans which have more flavorful and unique cupping characteristics than a basic grade Colombian coffee. They deliver a full body with balanced acidity and notes of orange zest and creamy milk chocolate. It’s definitely a favorite for a beautifully smooth cup.

About the grower: Looking to support women in coffee? For the past three years, Programa Mujer Cafetera Asociación De Productores Agrícolas De Timaná (ASPROTIMANA) has been working directly with women producers to establish coffee production from farms owned and managed by women.
With the support of Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA), 53 women have emerged with the skills to process specialty coffee using their own micro-mills. Cultivating coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas, corn, and beans lends to careful post-harvest practices including hand sorting cherries before depulping, fermenting, washing, and drying the coffee using their own micro-mills.
After processing, ASPROTIMANA works with an export company called San Miguel, a family owned company based in Huila that focuses on bringing traceable micro-lots to the international market. The partnership ensures traceability and quality control throughout the post harvest process and a mutual goal to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families through internationally marketing women’s coffee to gain improved premiums. wider market, and vice versa.
