More Information

Miguel Quiganas is the owner of Finca Altamira situated at 1750 masl in the area of Yaquiva, Inza. The farm size is a total of 1.5ha and it is planted with 900 trees and the varietals are caturra and castillo. Annually the the farm produces around  35 bags of green coffee.

Miguel is invovled with Asorcafe, which was founded in 2003 in the town of Pedegral in Inza and there are currently 290 members who are part of the association. Asorcafe was set up not only to help these producers to sell their coffee through the specialty coffee market, but also to provide a framework and structure to further their education and progression and to improve the economic and social conditions for themselves, their families and their community.

 These small producers work on plots of land between 1.8 – 2 ha in size and farm coffee up to altitudes of 2100 masl. The farms are planted with caturra, typica, bourbon, tabi, castillo and some pink bourbon. Traditionally the coffee is fully washed and once harvested the coffee is then pulped and fermented for between 20-40 hours depending on the local environment. After this the coffee is washed and any immatures removed and then it is dried for between 8 – 15 days weather depending in parabolic driers.

 Siruma, who have partnered with our importers at Falcon Speciality, started working with ASORCAFE in 2021 after establishing initial connection with them. Asorcafe deliver samples to Siruma where they are cupped and assessed for their cup quality and making sure the physical specifications meet our standards for moisture, yield and cup quality. After this the coffee is delivered to Siruma’s warehouse in Manizales and Asorcafe are paid immediately for the coffee.
