Background From Our Importer:
ASOPEP was originated by a group of entrepreneurial families who saw the specialty coffee world as a life-changing opportunity.
Their exceptional agro-climatic conditions and a well-trained team, allowed them to pursue an ambitious project focused on producing the highest quality coffees. Being 160 miles from the nearest cities and having to traverse crumbling roadways did not stop ASOPEP from building a truly unique community-based project.
The Association has put special attention on differentiating their cup profiles through post-harvest processes such as natural, honey, anaerobic and carbonic maceration. Recently, several young producers became the first in Planadas to obtain their Q-Grade certification, a tremendous advantage that has allowed the organization to take their quality standards to the next level.
