We have at our producers’ disposal the benefit of wet process with a capacity of 10,000 pounds of cherry coffee per hour, it is divided into 2 modules, in one coffee is processed with certification seals and the second module is for conventional coffees. The process is always supervised by our technical staff, who is trained to give a quick solution to any problem in the wet processing line.
Our purpose with this service is that the producer prepares his coffee in clean conditions and adequate health measures, so that his product is of the best quality, complying with the national and international standard.
The process of dry processing is also part of our service, which is complementary to the process of wet processing, producers have the possibility to dry their coffee after they receive it in the wet state. All the producers who have membership with our organization have the following options for the drying process of their coffee.
The type of drying is chosen according to the quality that needs to be obtained in the final stage, however this is a decision that the same producer takes from the moment of the harvest in the coffee plant.

We provide pre-harvest financing to our partners (as) suppliers, so they can give timely maintenance to their farms, according to the needs raised by them. The main objective of this initiative is to help the producer in maintenance seasons, since at this time the income is lower than what the producer has access to during the harvest season.
Since we are an association of small producers we offer a relatively small interest, in comparison with the local financial ones. We feel committed to each of our partners looking for new ways to develop projects that encourage the continuous improvement of agricultural practices.
