Colombia La Fortuna

Sold out
Hernando Chantre has been a coffee farmer his entire life. However, it is only recently that he has been able to maximize his farm’s potential for high quality production. At 1,950 meters, it is no surprise that, by nature, his coffee is exceptional. But with only 3 hectares under production and limited access to specialty coffee markets, Hernando previously saw little profit from farming coffee and used to sell his coffee as wet parchment for whatever the going rate was to his local cooperative. He was dissatisfied (as were many of his neighbors) but didn’t know how to make the most of his farm’s potential for excellence, It was only about a year ago that members of the large cooperative to which Hernando belonged in Colombia’s remote Huila department realized that their location and passion for coffee farming gave them a special edge when it came to producing high quality coffee. Seeing some of the quality initiatives and micro lot separation that forward thinking cooperatives around Colombia were exploring, a small group of about 20 producers broke off from the larger regional cooperative to establish their own organization named Aprocoagrosh (quite a mouthful) in early 2014.
