As well as producing coffee, Astrid leads the Association of Women Agricultural Producers of Sotará, which is a part of a larger national association of women producers. Astrid’s association hopes to empower women to find successful careers in specialty coffee production and works in education, marketing and unionizing.
Panther Coffee’s relationship with Astrid began at a coffee competition and auction in Timbio in 2018. After her coffee qualified for the auction, Astrid was asked what her life was like as a coffee producer in the department of Cauca. “Well, I wake up, I take care of my kids, I take care of my husband, I take care of the house, I take care of the animals, then I take care of the coffee.” Panther Coffee green coffee buyer Joel Pollock loved the sentiment and five years later, we continue to love the coffee.
This year’s harvest is as delicious as ever, with harmonious notes of fresh fruit and caramel and an assertive sweetness. We are happy to share with you Finca Agroambiental!
