Located in Timbio just to the south of Popayan in Cauca is where the Cosurca Cooperative is based and represents 11 farmer organisations and 1500 families spread across the Colombian Massif here in central & south Cauca. The Coop was established in 1993 and at looking to work for its members to help farmers and their communities prosper both economically & socially. The cooperative has a number of programs looking at post conflict resolution, women’s empowerment, youth promotion, general education, ethnic minorities & environmental harmony. The coop is working to have all its members working organically as they believe this is best for the prosperity and future of the farmers and environment together. This Palo Grande blend is made up of co ee coming from the producer organisations that was cupped and assessed by Alberto and the Cosurca QC team in the lab at the mill. Each of these 4 producers making up this lot are small holders with between 1-4Ha of land. All the co ee is hand picked during the harvest. The C02 deca eination process was first discovered by a scientist called Kurt Zosel at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research in 1967 as he was looking at new ways of separating mixtures of substances. In 1988, a German deca eination company called CR3 developed this process for deca eination whereby natural carbon dioxid is combined with water to create ‘sub-critical’ conditions which creates a highly solvent substance for ca eine in co ee. It is a gentle, natural and organically certified process.
