FACTORY, LABORATORY AND TRAINING CENTER
With a capacity of processing 20 tons of green coffee per day, the processing plant and the laboratory of the CPC is located 24 kilometers from Pakse in the district of Bachieng. CPC staff and seasonal workers receive coffee parchment from different groups so that it is husked, sorted and packaged for export there.
With the support of its main trading partner and the Fairtrade premium, the CPC owns a sensory analysis laboratory since 2010. A panel of professionals and skilled cuptasters conducts regular tests with the constant concern of improving the quality of the coffee produced by CPC members. The laboratory also includes a roasting unit for Champee coffee, which is sold on the domestic market.
With the support of the Asian Development Bank, ADB / ADB, the Cooperative has a training center since 2013 to accommodate the producers within the framework of capacity building activities.
As part of its Research & Development activities, CPC implemented in 2013 an experimental composting station on the grounds of the factory and laboratory.
