APROCASSI (Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Solidarios de San Ignacio) was formed nearly twenty years ago in 2000, originally as an effort to protest the mining companies who were flocking to the area to harvest precious metals. Set on protecting their farming land, a small group of farmers banded together and formed the association. Currently, the association has about 600 members. APROCASSI is focused on selling certified coffees, increasing production, and the diversification of products, such as honey, cocoa, and pisciculture. APROCASSI is focused on keeping youth in coffee, as well as women’s income diversification. This coffee has a big, chocolate profile for an overall well-balanced cup. It makes a great pot of drip and is hearty enough to enjoy with (or without!) milk.
