Over 2300 small-scale farmers have joined together to create the Central Multiple Service Cooperative, better known as PRODECOOP. The initial coffee processing takes place on the individual farms. Sun drying and final processing takes place at the coop’s dry mill, Las Segovias, located in the town of Palacaguina. PRODECOOP carefully supervises all phases of the coffee production and processing in order to ensure strict quality control. The coop has spent the last few years identifying and marketing the coop’s best coffees in order to improve the economic status of all the farmers. The coop families are proud to offer these excellent, high quality coffees as an example of their hard work and dedication.
This fresh roasted coffee is classified as Organic, Fair Trade, SHB, EP.
SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude above 1200 meters. This term is also synonymous with SHG/Strictly High Grown. Coffee grown at high altitudes, which allows the bean to develop slower, results in a denser, higher quality bean.
EP (European Preparation) specifies that the raw beans are all hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
