Jose Vasquez - Cochadas

"Cochadas" refers to harvesting coffee in batches each day and storing the harvested cherries in barrels from Monday to Wednesday. This process results in some cherries having more fermentation time than others. On Thursday morning, the coffee is depulped and washed before being placed on drying beds for approximately 8-12 days, depending on the weather. The end result is a very complex and sweet coffee with notes of brown sugar.

Jose Daniel Vasquez is an entrepreneur, or as he likes to call himself, a "coffee-preneur" at just 25 years old. With the support of his wife and inspiration from his 5-year-old son, he created his own roasted coffee brand, Vascoffee. He grows the coffee himself in the Antioquia region and distributes it throughout the area. Despite facing many challenges in his short life, he has always had the support of his mother, Luz Mery, and is a true illustration of resilience. Like many other young people, Jose inherited his farm from his parents. However, instead of selling it and moving back to the city, he decided to pursue the opportunity in front of him and make the best of it. He lives about an hour away from Andes, Antioquia in a small village called Santa Ines. Jose has a degree in Agroecological Production and attended the Fermentation Bootcamp and Specialty Coffee Production courses at SENA. Combined with his 16 years of experience, he truly stands out as a role model for young coffee farmers.
