  • Info

    Owned by producer Nelson Forero, Finca California is a small organic farm located in the renowned Tolima department of Colombia. As a member of the Asociación de Tecnólogos y Productores Agropecuarios de Bilbao (Asotbilbao), Nelson implements organic farming practices across his 14-hectare farm, including the use of organic fertiliser and compost made on-site. With the help of the other members of Asotbilbao, these environmentally friendly practices and methodologies are promoted to the surrounding Tolima coffee growing community, with the ultimate aim to improve not only the coffee but the socio-economic growth of the region too.

    This is a sweet and vibrant Yellow Caturra lot, which has been grown under shade and handpicked only when ripe. The coffee is processed on-site; after sorting and a period of resting, the coffee is de-pulped and wet fermented under water for 24 hours. The washed coffee is then dried, under partial shade, at an average temperature of 25°C until a moisture content of 10-11% is reached.

    Asotbilbao was founded on October 2010 by 35 members who graduated from SENA –Colombias’ Higher Education National Service. They wanted to serve as a bridge between the Governmental institutions and coffee producers, to enhance coffee quality and productivity.

    Currently, Asotbilbao has 38 active members from different areas of Bilbao, Municipality of Planadas in South Tolima, and have become well-known for their organisational skills, high cup scores and Organic and Fair Trade certifications.
