This specialty coffee is cultivated and processed by families who maintain diversified income sources, including beekeeping alongside their coffee farms. The primary goal is to further promote honey production within the Capucas community, benefiting both coffee producers and beekeepers, in order to enhance economic stability. This initiative offers existing beekeepers the opportunity to upgrade their hives and provides training for those new to beekeeping. The hope is that women and young individuals in these communities will seize this opportunity.
Now, about the coffee itself? With the increased presence of pollinators and the shade provided by plum, banana, pepeto, and guama trees, coffee yields are amplified, resulting in added benefits for both the farmers and coffee enthusiasts.
The process begins with the careful hand-picking of ripe cherries by the dedicated members of the community. These cherries are then gathered at the producer’s home and transported to the cooperative’s wet processing plant, where pulping and drying take place. The drying process occurs in COCAFCAL solar dryers.
The coffee is carefully dried over a span of 15 to 22 days, depending on the prevailing weather conditions. In simple terms, more sunny days lead to quicker drying, while cloudier days slow down the drying process. Throughout this period, the coffee is regularly raked to ensure uniform drying and prevent unintentional fermentation.
