Coffee cultivation from small family-owned farms is the backbone of production in Huila, Colombia. Banexport, a Colombian export company, works directly with small producers who have a shared commitment to exquisite coffee processing and loving care for their farms and the environment.
Banexport helps producers access technical support regarding best practices for farm management, harvest processing, and cupping feedback, allowing them to improve their coffee quality. In addition, the model of collaborative effort produces traceable community blends with vibrant regional profiles.
This spectacular coffee lot comes from 4 producers (Clara Deicy López Lasso, Nelson García Cordoba, Yeni Socorro Anacona Hoyos, and Wilmer Medardo Moncayo Gallardo) with small farms in the municipality of San Agustin within the department of Huila.
Each producer focuses on selective picking, then floats the cherries to remove damaged and underdeveloped beans, ferments the coffee in the cherry for 24 hours before depulping to remove the skin, and ferments for another 36 hours to remove the mucilage with three stages of washing. Finally, the wet parchment is dried to 11 percent moisture on raised beds.
With guidance from Banexport, each producer follows the same post-harvest protocols, allowing for consistent blending from their respective farms. After processing, Banexport provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export to the international market, which offers better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families livelihoods.
