Producers typically cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas, corn, and beans. They carefully harvest and sort cherries before depulping, fermenting, washing, and drying the coffee using their own micromills. The cooperative strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families through internationally marketing coffee to gain improved premiums based on a reputation for quality and certification.
