COLOMBIA FTO OCAMONTE SANTANDER GRAINPRO is sourced from the Asociación de Pequeños Caficultores de Ocamonte (APCO). APCO consists of about 270 families from the municipality of Ocamonte in the department of Santander, Colombia. Members of APCO currently cultivate a coffee varietal called Castillo. The National Federation of the Coffee Growers of Colombia commissioned the development of this coffee variety, Castillo, because it is more resistant to Roya (coffee rust). This helped to increase both the national harvest and the quality of the coffee beans. Because coffee is such a huge export, a lot of work has been done at the government level to ensure a continuous supply and a quality product.
