AMACA is a group of talented women producers in El Tambo, Cauca. The association offers women a platform to access a wider market. The cup profile has rich notes of sweet almonds and tropical fruits. This coffee is very versatile and can easily be enjoyed on any brew method. As an espresso it has a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel.
Most of the members are processing the cherries on their own farms. The coffees are then dried gently on raised beds inside parabolic dryers, which gives the coffee time to unfold its full aroma. AMACA receives a premium price to reflect the quality of this coffee but also to support their aspirations and processing facilities.
Cauca stretches from the Western Cordillera mountain range to the Pacific Ocean. Valle de Cauca is to the North and Nariño to the south. This coffee comes from multiple farmers in the Sierra and Paez communities within Cauca. Coffees from here, when processed well, are typically big and juicy with red fruits, caramel, chocolate and some intense lingering acids.
