Colombia, Planadas

Tolima Department

A flourishing organization of 168 coffee farming families make up the Asociación de Productores Egológicos de Planadas (ASOPEP), one of the few producers of certified Fair Trade and Organic coffee in Colombia. It’s no small wonder that one can find fantastic quality coffee being produced in and around Planadas. The Idyllic town is blessed with warm days, cool nights, excellent elevation (1300-2170 masl) and healthy trees.


The cooperative itself was formed in January, 2013, with the mission “To be known as an association that creates opportunities for the personal growth of its members, protects the environment, innovates in commercial business processes and is always in the vanguard of specialty coffee producers worldwide.” From their track-record, it’s safe to say that their mission is a success.

ASOPEP have a strong focus on educating members of their community because they’ve realized that sustainability is the key to the country’s continued success in producing specialty grade coffees. The cooperative facilitates internal cupping and barista exhibitions and competitions to build enthusiasm for specialty coffee. They’ve even gone a step further and produced consumer-oriented specialty coffee events to garner interest in buying and drinking specialty coffee.

About this coffee

This particular Colombian is a fruity little number. It starts off with apples and sweet berries and then finishes off with stone fruits like nectarine and white plum. It has a smooth mouthfeel and medium body, deviating slightly from your traditional Colombians which tend to have a heavier sweetness, and chocolate notes, this coffee is a great representation of the diversity of flavor that comes from this powerhouse of specialty Arabica.
