Amor de Dios III History Alberto Siles Aduviris farm covers ten hectares of land at an elevation of 1646 meters above sea level. Three hectares are planted with catuai and caturra coffee. We were very excited to participate in this years competition, said Alberto, and now we have an excellent result. Alberto plans to use his earnings from the auction to cover the costs of his childrens education and to expand his coffee production. Alberto is a member of the association AIPEAD, a producers association located in the community of Amor de Dios in Caranavi. Quality Practices Ripe cherries are hand harvested from June to September. Depulping is done daily immediately after harvest. Wet milling is done centrally at AIPEADs plant. Depulped coffee is fermented for 12-15 hours and washed with clean water from mountain streams. The coffee is then sun-dried on drying tables.
