Anserma is located in the western area of the department of Caldas. It is an agricultural centre where the cultivation of coffee stands out. The cooperative started operating in 1967.  It operates in the municipalities of: Anserma, Risaralda, San José, Belalcázar and Viterbo and its main purpose is is to promote and improve the economic, social, technical and cultural conditions of the associates. The cooperative has 2,083 associated coffee growers who cultivate excellent quality coffee with dedication and passion. Amongst coffee they also grow crops like sugarcane and bananas to sell for income. The cooperative with the new General Manager Luis Miguel, have looked to embrace technology and the shift towards specialty coffee production. They have been building temperature-controlled areas in the warehouse for looking after the micro lots that the producers deliver. The cooperative have started to experiment with producing naturals for the first time without putting the risk on the producer. Luis Miguel invested in a Nuna Coffee drying box that can regulate the temperature and the humidity to dry the coffee. These boxes were pioneered in Colombia to try and combat the ever-changing daily climates in the Colombian Andes. To start this project they selected a few local producers who are known for quality to buy cherry for over the regular market price. From here that the cooperative they then set up a sorting station to pick the ripest cherry and create uniformity. The varietal used in this lot is Castillo. After picking and separation the coffee is then washed and fermented in sealed barrels for 96 hours. It is then put in the drying box where it is dried at 35 – 40 centigrade for 100-120 hours. These are the first steps in an initial trial which they hope to expand and improve the capacity at the cooperative and involve more producers in this program.
