De Beauvoir OrganicBy: Scarlett Roasters
FUDAM is a 300-member association of organic-certified (and Rainforest AllianceÐcertified) growers that was founded in the year 2000 by just seven producers who shared a vision of sustainable agriculture as well as environmental protection and development.This lot comprises coffees from 16 member farms, all of whose land is between 1700Ð2100 meters. The farmers pick their coffee during the day and depulp it in the afternoon, typically fermenting the lots for 16Ð24 hours dry. The coffees are generally washed two or three times before being dried either in small “casa elbas,” mechanical dryers, or parabolic dryers. The mechanical drying takes between 25Ð40 hours, while the other drying structures can take up to 15 days.
