Lohas Tolima is the work of ASOTBILBAO – 38 small producers working in Planadas, South Tolima. Their working practices focus on quality coffee for the social and environmental well-being of their community.
This producer group was established in October 2010 in the region of Planadas, South Tolima. The group currently has 38 members and was initially made up of 35 graduates from SENA – Colombia’s Higher Education National Service. The group established themselves to work as a bridge between smallholder producers and the government institutions, with the aim of improving quality and productivity of coffee production.
During harvest season the coffee is picked and pulped before being left to ferment for 12 – 16 hours overnight. The coffee is then washed and naturally sun dried on roof tops or in parabolic driers.
