Producer Robinson Rivera has been growing coffee for 18 years and part of the ACC group for 5 years. This lot comes from the El Silencio farm, with 6 hectares of coffee growing area producing Castillo and Tabi. This naturally processed lot undergoes tank fermentation for 48 hours before being silo dried at 28 Celsius. Drying is paused at 16 hours and the temperature is raised to 37 degrees until 20% humidity is reached. Finally further fermentation takes place in sealed plastic cans for 24 hours, then parabolic drying is used to achieve 10% humidity.
The ACC Coop (Asociación de Caficultores del Centro del Cauca por la Paz) is a non-profit organisation that was created in 2016 in Piendamó, Cauca. The purpose of the association has always been to improving coffee quality, going all the way from the crop through to commercialisation, where focusing on these aspects leads to positive social impact - improving the wellbeing of the regional families, taking care of the environment, and harnessing peace in the territory.
