In 2004 ASPRO Timaná was the recipient of a donation by a UK specialty roaster. This funding was the catalyst for a quality-oriented strategy that positioned ASPRO Timaná as a high-quality player in the Colombian coffee world. The Association is currently participating in the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (Netherlands Enterprise Agency), the project consists in promoting roasted specialty coffees at origin.
In 2013 ASPRO Timaná opened the first specialty coffee shop in Timaná as a meeting space for the members to share knowledge, meet with clients and train local baristas.
