This coffee comes from the region Andes in the department of Antioquia and 4 small farms all with between 1 - 5 hectares of land. It is named after the mountain that just sits outside of the town of Andes in Antioquia. This coffee comes from various small holders who belong to the Cooperative De los Andes, who have supported these growers and their families for generations in this region. The co-operative are very active in trying to protect their members and have introduced a pension program for the members as well as having programs to encourage the next generation of coffee farmers. The coop has around 6000 members in Antioquia which is the biggest coffee department in Colombia. The coffee is picked, pulped and fermented (usually dry) for between 18-36 hours depending on weather and exact altitude. After this the coffee is then dried on roof patios or in parabolic driers for 10-14 days. From here they then deliver it to the coop where they store it and grade it.
