This coffee was grown and processed by William Mora Merno, who is a member of the ASOPROAAA Cooperative. The Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios de Acosta y Aserrí (ASOPROAAA) Cooperative was born as a result of the devastating consequences of Hurricane Mitch. After the storm wiped out the agricultural production systems of the Aserrí and Acosta sub-regions, ASOPROAAA was formed to help get coffee farmers back into production and promote sustainable production. William takes great care to continually improve the quality of the coffee grown at Finca Parritilla, and the farm also employs sustainable production methods to improve soil recuperation and flora and fauna conservation. The region is characterised by two well-defined seasons; a wet season lasting seven months from May to November, and a dry season lasting from December to April. These conditions favour the blossoming of coffee. The cultivation of coffee is fundamental to the socio-economic growth of the region, and producers dedicate their lives to the plantations they nurture.
