The 50 member group of Asociacion Agropecuario de Aipecito, located in Aipecito, just outside of Neiva, Huila, was formed in 2014 with the idea of producing organic coffees. From 2014, until the end of the 2015, they transitioned from conventional, non-organic to organic and finally received their certification in 2016. The purpose of transitioning was to offer a healthier product to consumers, but also to think about their quality of life and the environment. The knew it was possible to produce a high quality product without contaminating the environment; this also helped attract fauna and flora back to the coffee lands. Of the current 50 members, 46 are certified, with the remaining members currently in transition. The farms range in elevation from between 1,700 and 1,950 meters and the producers primarily grow Colombia, Caturra and Castillo. This is our first year working with the group and we are extremely excited about future harvests! (Photos of training in Aipe available on request).Review Quality Report

The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,700 m.a.s.l. and consists of 2.5 hectares in coffee, 100% planted in Caturra. Deiby is like a mad scientist who probably experiments too much, but so far the results have been very promising! This lot is a compilation of the best of his various experiments throughout the harvest and the idea is to replicate those lots going forward, using the same recipe. Once the coffee is washed, it is then taken to slow-dry anywhere from 20-40 days in a parabolic dryer, he built himself of bamboo and resembles a natural version of the famous Centre Pompidou in Paris. This is our 2nd year working with Deiby and is one of our contracted preferred producers that we hope to continue working with for many years. He and his brothers inherited the 6Ha farm from his father 5 years ago. His brothers are not interested in the coffee, so with the increased income from his high quality coffee he hopes to be able to buy his brothers’ shares in the next years.

A unique combination that blew us away. We immediately accepted the coffee and were hoping to receive more. But since then, we lost contact with Dawes for a long time. His farm is located in the mountains around Pitalito in the south of Huila, but he has no cellphone coverage at the farm, so getting updates from him has been challenging. But of course, we've be on the lookout for him and after a few months of silence we managed to contact him again and soon we’ll receive new samples for our next shipment. After the harvest we will pay him a visit to find out more about him and his farm. Dawes is one of the first farmers that came to us through our new partners "The Bean Project" in Pitalito. Finca la Esmeralda of Dawes Muños is located in the mountains surrounding Pitalito, a town known for its vast range of specialty coffees. His Caturra grows at an elevation of 1610m, which seems low for us. But Pitalito has a special microclimate where coffees at 1600m have similar profiles as coffees in other regions of 1800-1900 m.a.s.l.Review Quality ReportGo to Blog

The farm sits at 1,939 meters and consists of 8 Ha in total, with approximately 5 planted in coffee. Of those four, three are made up of Tabi/Castillo/Colombia, one is made up of Caturra and the fourth, the newest lot, Caturra Chiroso. The lot from this harvest is a blend of his Caturra and Colombia varieties and is the result of different fermentation experiments. Historically, Javier fermented his coffee for 36 hours, but it seemed that the "newer" trees of the renovated lot were causing quality to fall slightly. As such, he decided to extend the fermentation and the final result is a combination of 12 hours in cherry, followed-up by a 49 hours dry ferment (turned over approximately every 6 hours). Once the coffee has been washed, it's taken to african beds to dry, anywhere from 18-25 days, depending on the weather. We are very pleased with the results and look forward to working with Javier to improve the quality even more. In addition, another important point to note is that Javier pays a 25% premium to pickers compared to the average wage, to help guarantee a more uniform picking of only mature cherries.

The majority of the population is Ethiopian Orthodox; many clans make up the overarching Oromo people group, including the Saphera, Indibo, and Kube. For many centuries, the Oromo people ruled themselves through an egalitarial socio-political system called the "gadaa", which democratically elected a head spokesperson of an assembly every eight years. This system held strong and healthy for centuries but began to weaken in the 1800's, until Menelik the First Solomonic Emperor of Ethiopia created a new administrative system in the region.

We communicate their story: By now, the curving ascent from the humidity of Yirgalem through the mountains with their long vistas of traditional round bamboo-covered huts and basic fences (also bamboo mesh) is familiar. The air grows cooler and mist begins to fill the valleys far below. When Daye is reached, it's always a surprise—we take a sharp left from the pavement onto the precarious bridge between drainage dikes, and suddenly are right smack dab in the bustling center of the town. Immediately there is a stop at the local restaurant, where there is a propane-fueled bright red espresso machine and a smiling barista who prepares macchiatos with pre-ground espresso spooned into the baskets and hot steamed milk with pale sugar stirred in. The filigreed metal gates of the restaurant clot with bright faces, curious to see what we are doing. Anybody who's not from Daye is an event in Daye! From Daye, you embark on the additional 5 bumpy hours to arrive in the village of Tulu Boro. There is no road, and the immaculate landscape almost appears to glisten in the cool sunlight. It is as if nature is harboring a remote coffee paradise.This is our second year purchasing coffee from Zeneba Genale, a delightful and hardworking Sidama man who made the 'getting to know you' dance a pleasure. In fact, we purchased his entire production this year. He is formerly the Quality Manager of the well respected Shanta Golba Cooperative in Bensa, Sidama. His experience and dedication to hard work and detail fortify a strong platform for an area of Ethiopia that is already producing inherently exceptional coffees. We are just beginning to explore the dynamic range of flavor profiles that West Arsi coffees bring to our cups, and as we work closer with Zenebe in the coming years, we anticipate outstanding coffee! If you have the privilege of breaking bread with Zenebe, he will treat you like family. He is most proud of sharing the traditional Sidama breakfast: ground and fermented enset (false banana) root, and a lovely smoked milk that had been buried underground until it clotted and fermented a little like yogurt. Local herdsmen and coffee folks gathered to share the breakfast and we laughed, drank coffee, and did our best to communicate, as these things always go. The rainy season in Tulo Boro is from March to November, after which time the coffee harvest kicks into gear. Sitting on four hectares of land, the Nansebo Worka washing station has a great beginning to quality standards. The pulping machine is McKinnon brand, with four disks, and is run by mechanic Biniam with fifteen years of experience. We have been working with Zenebe implementing process controls like float tanks and increased fermentation and drying protocols.

The farm is about 7,5 Hectares of which there are 5 Hectares of coffee production area. The rest is a nature reserve with forest area. At this moment the are cultivating about 4 coffee varieties: Typica, Red Bourbon, Geisha and Caturra. The altitude is about 1700-1800 masl with the lowest point at 1705 and the highest at 1859 masl. The Bourbon and Geisha is grown around 1750 mts in a soil that is called "Franco arenoso", which is loam soil. There is a strict selection for only mature cherries during the harvesting and immature, dry and green beans are avoided both during picking and the wet milling process. The cascara is only derived from the mature cherries. Once the pulping process is started, immediately, the husk is transferred to the raised drying tables. So pre-dried on raised beds, after a couple of days it is transferred to the "Marquesinas"to finish drying. Once they are dried both the coffee and the husk are carried to manual cleaning process using a sieve. After Wilfred Ule carries out the process of tasting. The farm has a laboratory for cupping, and good options to deliver the product packed correctly for transport. This way they guarantee a hygienic process in which both coffee and cascara are treated is in the best way possible. The family is made up of 4 people, Wilfreds and his wife Yubely Trujillo, plus the two children Juan Camilo Ule and Juan de Jesus Ule. Together they have been producing coffee for approximately 15 years, of which we have dedicated the last seven years to the production of high quality coffees.
