Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible (FUDAM) is a 300-member
association of organic-certified (and Rainforest Alliance–certified) growers that was founded in
the year 2000 by just seven producers who shared a vision of sustainable agriculture as well as
environmental protection and development. The farmers pick their coffee during the day and
depulp it in the afternoon, typically fermenting the lots for 16–24 hours dry. The coffees are
generally washed two or three times before being dried either in small "casa elbas," mechanical dryers, or parabolic dryers. The mechanical drying takes between 25–40 hours, while the other drying structures can take up to 15 days. The Cup: Sweet and savory with nutty, cocoa, floral, and berry flavors.
