Moreno family members have become somewhat of a farming dynasty in Santa Barbara, inspiring many of their neighbors to pursue specialty coffee. It must be incredibly challenging to consistently cultivate and produce the highest quality coffee. The Morenos are in this special category of coffee producer, and their sustained top position requires a mixture of ambition, long- term planning, understanding what their market is looking for, and constant reevaluation of agronomic, harvesting and processing techniques.  El Tanque is one of Danny Moreno's highest altitude tablons, producing this exceptional coffee.

Description

This offering comes from the Thimu wet mill. Thimu means “proverbs” in Kikuyu, as planters would congregate in this spot during breaks to learn Kikuyu proverbs from their elders. These lessons, passed down through generations, were considered essential to wisdom and understanding in the Kikuyu community. Today, the Thimu mill operates in a place steeped with the history of centuries of coffee planters. The Kiringa river provides fresh water, necessary for effective fermentation. About 3000 farmers use the Thimu wet mill to process their harvest. The Baragwi Farmers Co-op is named after the small village where it is located. It borders with Ngariama and Njuki-ini to the East, Kabare and Kirima to the West, Mount Kenya to the North, and Mwea Division to the South. 

Ethiopia Shakiso Mormora

Guji Zone | Heirloom | 2000-2300 masl | Fully-Washed

$18.00

Description

The 250 hectare Mormora plantation is located in southern Guji, which is situated between Yirgacheffe and Sidamo. The plantation practices organic farming and the coffee plants benefit from the organic matter shed from the native forest canopy. They add new plantings to the farm each year, all of the seed originating from a local heirloom that was collected nearby (they refer to as a "mother tree"). The family works with local small holders as well, buying their coffee, and also helping by offering training at the farm level as well as at their mill. We love this coffee's layers of citrusy sweetness.

He lives on his plantation and is the patriarch of 15 specialty coffee farmers, comprised of his sons and grandsons.

Katesha & Isanya Estates | Catimore 129 & Java | 1340-1600 masl | Fully-Washed | Swiss Water Process

$18.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

Description

Zambia is an origin not always associated with quality, and the catimore variety is also not usually recognized for great flavor.  It is better known for high yield and disease resistance.  However, this coffee from Mafinga Hills delivers a cup that is unique coming from Zambia. The Mafinga Hills are a plateau covered by hills, situated on the border between Zambia and Malawi in Southern Africa.  We have been tasting a complex and balanced array of fruit character ranging from grape and red apple, to ginger and cranberry, that makes for an exceptionally good cup of decaf.
