Located in the picturesque region of Antioquia, L&D mill is located in Cañas Gordas where this coffee is produced in a sustainable manner, seeking social and economic responsibility. The coffee is grown in a unique microclimate formed by hot and cold air currents that are generated by the flow of the Cauca River. Daily, cherries are picked by local farmers and brought to the wet mill. Samples from each farmer’s crop are taken and then submitted to quality controls. Inside the lab, green cherries are separated from ripe cherries and according to the yield percentage farmers are paid on the same day.In order to encourage farmers to pick only ripe cherries, premiums are offered to the highest yield range.
