Duber Buitron has been working with coffee for the past 5 years and grows all the coffee organically working in harmony with the environment and taking care of the land. Duber is a member of the Asprobalboa, this group are part of the Cooperative Cosurca who have been working hard in the communities they work with around the Popayan region. The Cooperative have several programs with a real focus especially on empowering their members with education and training to help them prosper post conflict.

On the farm the coffee is planted among banana and guama trees which help to provide shade. During the harvest from May to September the coffee is hand-picked and then pulped on the same day of collection. The coffee is then left to ferment for 14 hours in concrete tanks before then being washed and then dried in a parabolic drier for 8 – 10 days.
