More About El Lago – Ferney Quipo

Finca EL Lago is owned by 31-year-old Ferney Quipo. He has been a member of Asorcafe for 8 years. Asorcafe is an association of 290 members, which was set up to help producers sell their coffee as specialty, and to help further their education, which improves the economic and social conditions for themselves, their families and their community. These small producers work on plots of land between 1.8 – 2 hectares in size, and farm coffee up to altitudes of 2100 masl.

Once harvested, this coffee is pulped and fermented for 36 hours. The coffee is then washed and any immatures are removed. Then it is dried in a parabolic tent for 8-15 days (weather depending) until it reaches 11%.
