Our most popular coffee. A sweet and mellow brew created from the finest organic coffee beans from producers in the equatorial belt.
This is small batch coffee at its best, crafted from the world's best organic producers in Honduras, Peru and Nicaragua. These high altitude farms are focused on the production of high grade, top quality coffee.
Our Honduran cooperative currently has more than 425 members, 81 of which are female - with a focus on organic, arabica coffee beans. This is a collection of coffee producers who are pioneering in their approach to coffee farming making use of their own organic fertilisers from the waste product of the coffee cherries and bioethanol - creating a truly sustainable farming practice.
The cooperative also values the education of their members and organises courses for the local children as well as an organic agricultural school for the coffee farmers.
Our Peruvian producers are based in Jaén, Cajamarca, and offer an excellent example of the flourishing Peruvian coffee scene, with Jaén now considered the coffee capital of the entire country.
This cooperative has recently built accommodation for producers to stay when they are drying their coffees after traveling from the coffee farms.
The cooperative has also built a nursery where they study which coffee varieties are most productive, rust resistant and produce a fantastic cup. They have also developed a new warehouse in Jaén where they receive and store parchment. In it they have an expanded lab and a health post for producers. This means that when the producers deliver their harvest they can get a health check up.
And finally our Nicaraguan coffee is grown high in the mountains of Matagalpa, Jinotega and Las Segovias Nicaragua, this coffee has come from an area renowned for its rich volcanic soils, high alititudes and humid topical climates that are the perfect environments for producing high grade coffee.
The coffee cherries are picked by hand when very ripe, before being dried at a consistent low temperature to help enhance this coffee's fruity characteristics.
Comprising of the Yellow Catuai and Caturra varieties, this is a high quality coffee lot that is processed using the very latest methods within the region. As part of CECOCAFEN, the Central Association of Northern Coffee Cooperatives, this coffee is produced alongside 2,600 other farmer families building a community of support that includes access to financial markets and global distribution.
