Based in the Mendoza, a town in the Rodriguez de Mendoza province between the slopes of the Central and the Oriantal Cordilleras, Asociación de Productores de Cafés Orgánicos y Cafes Especiales de Amazonas (APROCOYCE) offers its members the chance to increase quality via improved access to services such as technical assistance, financial support social services and the facilities to cup the crop they are growing.
Formed originally with 23 partners but now standing at just over 280, the aim was to come together to help facilitate negotiations, enter new markets, and obtain licenses or certifications for the export of coffee. Through this they have been able bring in environmental initiatives such as reforestation projects, solid waste management and soil conservation plans over the 750 hectares that their members own. Working closely with Perunor, another cooperative that we have been working with for some time, has enabled APROCOYCE to plan and build their own cupping facility in their warehouse, bringing more immediacy and self ownership to the Coop.
