Why we love it: This sweet coffee is bright and chocolatey with notes of ripe, dark fruit! It's super adaptable to any brew method but we're partial to pour-over or batch brew.
Who it comes from: Magia del Campo comes from a young but well-established cooperative called Association de Productores Agropecuarios de Cafe Especial de Planadas (ASOPEP). Contained within its members is the capability for complete coffee infrastructure allowing for full control of processing, quality control, transportation and commercialization.
Why it matters: ASOPEP's general manager, Camilo Enciso, is also a regional leader and advocate for the region's cooperatives. He has fostered partnerships between the cooperatives, bringing greater market visibility and recognition for the region's coffees. ASOPEP has also utilized funding to purchase PPE for healthcare workers in their municipality and to launch campaigns to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
