"Cooperativa Multiénica y Pluricultural de Pequeños Caficultores del Cauca"
COMEPCAFE was founded October 8th, 2010, by 44 producers from the towns of Morales and Piendamo. They united with a goal to commercializing their coffee together in order to achieve better prices.The families contributing to COMEPCAFE are of Indigenous and Afro-Colombian origins, and have been producing coffee for the last 50 years.
Harvest season at COMEPCAFE is March to June (70%), and November to December (mitaca,or "fly crop,"30%)
For processing, COMEPCAFE uses a traditional "Zaranda" depulper, followed by dry fermentation for 12 hours, and the coffee is washed four times before being dried in a parabolic dryer.
The farm area is 372 hectares of clay loam and volcanic soil, with 129 hectares dedicated to coffee.
COMEPCAFE is FLO certified.
