The coffee trees at La Palma y El Tucan's (LPET) are surrounded by a vast ecosystem of plant life growing in harmony. This concept was designed by LPET founder, Felipe Sardi, after pursuing his Master's in Permaculture. He theorized that he could remove many of the coffee trees, rotate in other crops that would fix elements in the soil, and still have a comparable-sized harvest. He has been successful in his endeavor and has drastically changed the landscape within Cundinamarca, by sharing this program through the unbelievable Neighbours & Crops project.

LPET has a team called the Elite Picker Squad. This team is constantly monitoring the progress of the coffee plants throughout their farm as well as the N&C program. They focus on pruning, fertilizing, applying compost (made organically at LPET), and harvesting the cherry. This intense level of detail ensures maximum expression of the coffees harvested and premium dollar to go back and support each of the neighboring families. They're able to also focus their efforts of other crops and projects through the security of the N&C program.

This specific SL28 is lot 32 of the 2021 season. Fermented as whole cherry for 79 hours in sealed dark plastic tanks, then pulped and fermented in traditional open-air ceramic tanks for 23 hours with full mucilage. Followed by 35 days in shaded raised beds which are both temperature and humidity controlled, and 95 hours of mechanical dryer to ensure 11.5%.
