About Colombia Tolima Planda La Orquidea FTO Washed

Planda La Orquidea was born from the nonconformity of frustrated farmers to sell their main product at a low cost, generating losses. With the project in mind to be benefited with a fairer trade and an idea to improve the quality of life of many families of coffee growers, 10 enterprising farmers from Planadas, Tolima created Asoprocafees finalizing the year 2014. The idea was gaining strength and it was joined by 20 more coffee growers, forming a total of 30 associates with whom this great project of socioeconomic improvement was launched. Today the group already has 58 coffee growers committed to quality and sustainable production.
