THE STORY

Astrid Dorado is a third generation coffee producer and has grown coffee at Finca Agroambiental since 2004. As well as producing coffee, Astrid leads the Association of Women Agricultural Producers of Sotara, 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 started working with Astrid 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 four years later, we continue to love the coffee.

This year's harvest is as delicious as ever; it has intense sweetness and offers a dynamic and balanced mix of fresh fruit and rich chocolate flavors. We are happy to share with you Finca Agroambiental!
