ASOANEI has three collection centers in the villages of Pueblo Bello, Valledupar and Codazzi. Because of bad roads and the excessive transport price from the farms to the collection centers, it is very comom for the producers to bring their coffee by foot with the help of a mule or a horse. it can take 6h to 8h walking to get the coffees to the collection centers. from there, the coffees are transferred by truck to Santa Marta, to be milled and exported. The difficult access to the farms can be seen as a inconvenient, but to the local comunities it represents a barrier that protects their lifestyle.
70% of the association are women. In Arhuaco culture, they symbolize Mother Nature, fertility, purity and nature. A program has been set up to provide them with knowledge on new coffee growing practices to empower their role through training. Thanks to this training, they experiment new processes such as honey process. The association plays a social role by allowing producers to have access to micro credits and school aid for their children.
They also own a Biotrash factory that transforms organic waste into organic fertilizers. Organic waste often being thrown in rivers, this biotfactory and allows them to preserve the water streams and is part of a cilcular local economy.
DUNI is a varietal blend of red caturra, typica, colombia, castillo and bourbon.
