The APOYA-NATURALBA project was born out of the awareness that an association of producers with mainly social aims and that look for a friendly production with the environment but organic. All farms are diversified with other products such as cocoa, banana, oranges, seeking to create plots with rich ecosystems that allow improving connectivity for flora and fauna, forming biological corridors. The NAMA plan is an extension of our environmental procurement at the process and transformation level, seeking to reduce the ecological impact of the activity and offer a high consciousness coffee, for a cup of solidarity, a cup of nature.

Coffee promotion
We have made efforts to participate in several of the ICAFEs workshops and organize a Coffee Tour in our mill in order to promote the project and our environmentally-friendly coffee production.
Carbon and water footprint measurement
Workshops, participation in the CASCADA project, waste management for compost production, biodigester, recycling of water, own production of biofertilizers, among many others.
Energy efficiency
This part is still being measured, however our idea is to reduce to a maximum the use of dryers and implement a 100% solar drying process. We have increased the production of natural coffee in order to diminish the use of machines.
Involving producers
The representatives of our mill have informed our producers of the NAMA project and we have motivated 12 producers to participate in the trainings. We have also presented several projects with the support of INDER and MAG for the distribution of coffee rust-resistant coffee plants, introducing cocoa plants for the diversification of plots, trainings in water harvesting systems and environmentally friendly inputs, among many others.
