Description

This lot is made up of two different producer's coffees in the Buesaco municipality - Flor Alba Valencia (Vereda Bermejal), and David Gomez (Vereda Las Cochitas). They are growing coffee upwards of 1900-2000 meters. This lot was bought through a newer association in the area, Alianza Cafe, a group formed by two brothers who left Buesaco de Altura after the association was sold to a Bogota foundation.  We have found layers of complex sugar flavors in this lot that translate very well to espresso or filter.

This community lot consists of the very best production from 10 small producers from the small town of La Union de Chirinos.  'La Union' is widely renowned as being one of the best areas for specialty coffee production due to its climatic conditions and high altitude. The 10 producers contributing to this lot have an average of 20 years of producing coffee in this privileged region of Peru. They are all committed, above all, to renewing old coffee plantations by planting varieties such as Typica, Caturra, and Bourbon to improve cup quality.

Kenya Thimu

apricot, pineapple, honeysuckle

Kirinyaga | SL-34 & SL-28 | 1700-1800 masl | Fully-Washed

$18.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

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

bergamot, lemon zest, orange blossom

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

$18.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

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.

Description

Pedro Moreno was one of the first farmers producing really great quality coffee in the Santa Barbara region. He was the first person to plant coffee in El Cedral and moved there to live in the early 1970s. The first two varieties he planted were Caturra and Bourbon and he still grows these varieties, along with additional Pacas that he has added over the years. He lives on his plantation and is the patriarch of 15 specialty coffee farmers, comprised of his sons and grandsons. Pedro has been producing coffee since San Vicente first started focusing on specialty coffee production and has placed in several Cup of Excellence competitions.

Ethiopia Nansebo

nectarine, cherry, pineapple

Sidama | Heirloom | 1800-2000 masl | Fully-Washed

$18.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

Description

This beautiful coffee undergoes an incredibly long (72 hour) submerged fermentation. It is then washed with fresh water and dried on raised beds. This intensive processing explains the vibrant, well-structured acidity we find. 

We love this coffee's juiciness. We taste orange and pineapple juice. The sweetness and velvety body of this coffee make it stellar as espresso and as filter. 

Rwanda Shyira

pomegranate, clove, molasses

Nyabihu | Bourbon | 1800-2200 masl | Fully-Washed

$17.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

Description

This coffee hails from the Shyira Washing Station in the Nyabihu district of Western Rwanda.  For processing, the coffee is washed and fermented for 12 hours and sun-dried for 35 days. 1,869 farmers provide cherries to this station and last season they participated in the FFS (Farmer Field Schools) program, which developed a nursery with 110,000 seedlings and distributed them successfully to farmers in the region. This program helps to train and educate small coffee producers in better agricultural practices in order for them to gain better yields from their trees. Shyira is an elegant cup with complex acidity and sweetness.

 

Kenya Karumandi AA

watermelon, tangerine, rose hip

SL-28, SL-34 | Kirinyaga | Fully-Washed | 1800 masl

$24.00

Free Shipping on Orders Over $30

Description

Karumandi is the the name of the factory that produced this lot, located in north-central Kirinyaga. Contributing farmers are members of the Baragwi Farming Cooperative Society, which operates a collection of 12 washing stations throughout Kirinyaga and has an active membership of almost 12,000 farming families. 

Smallholders like those that contribute to Karumandi Factory tend to measure their plots by number of trees rather than acreage, averaging around 250 coffee plants per plot. Many are inter-cropping to improve the biodiversity of the region and the security of their harvest, planting banana, grevillea, and macadamia in addition to coffee.  Like most Kenyan growing regions, coffee in Kirinyaga benefits from its equatorial location and two distinct annual rainy seasons, resulting in a main crop in the winter and a fly crop harvested in the summer.

Zambia Mafinga Hills Decaf

concord grape, red apple, cranberry

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.
