AGPROCEM is a producer association with 35 members who live in Montalvo within the municipality of Planadas in the department of Tolima. It was founded in 2013 by Edinson Vaquiro and Israel Montes who are coffee producers from Tolima. It obtained Fair Trade certification in 2015 and invested premiums from the sales of certified coffee to build a warehouse and an administrative office. AGPROCEM’s goal is to assist its members in improving coffee quality while obtaining better prices for their specialty coffee. Lush notes of lemon, peach and cream complement the silky mouthfeel of this coffee.
